Westnye Gardens

The Parks and Leisure Services team has worked with local residents to update Westnye Gardens and create a beautiful, fun play garden.

Westnye Play Garden is where younger children can experience adventure in a garden setting.

The project to revitalise Westnye Gardens began as part of the Council's Play Strategy and was taken up by residents who wanted to see the park revived and transformed into a play space for local children

The garden is not just a play area, it retains its sense of place as a walled garden with delightful trees and plants.

The new picnic seating and planting provides a welcoming atmosphere for everyone; it remains a garden to visit and enjoy a break.
