The Secret Garden Playground

The Secret Garden Playground

We are looking at the possibility of creating a new creative playground and picnic area behind the walled gardens at Welbeck, next to The Courtyard at Welbeck.

Possible designs for how it could look are being drawn up and include wildflower areas, willow tunnels, trim trails, and den building structures.  

Playground Entrance











It is hoped too to create a new footpath and cycle trail that would lead from The Courtyard at Welbeck, taking walkers and cyclists alongside the woodland play area, through the picturesque village of Holbeck and beautiful rolling countryside, and through to the prehistoric gorge of Creswell Crags. We are also hoping to put in another footpath heading north from The Courtyard to link to The Robin Hood Way and Creswell Crags so that walkers no longer have to walk on the A60.

Proposed Playground
