Playscape has a Great First Day

Children were smiling yesterday as they got to be the first to have a play in the brand new Crow Wood Playscape. We had lots of positive comments from excited youngsters and parents - if you've been down to Lyme Park and had a play please give us your thoughts on the project!

Playscape is Open!

The all clear was given to Crow Wood Playscape today and the gates were opened to the first users, who ran through the greats screaming!

And it's not just children who've enjoyed their first play - Lyme Park property staff and volunteers have been enjoying the playscape too!

We'd love to hear your feedback on the playscape if you manage to make a visit over the summer holidays - and please send in your photos so that we can post them on the blog (

The project team hope that everyone really enjoys the playscape over the coming years

Playscape fit to Open!

Members of the project team today completed a final inspection of the playscape site and confirmed that upon completion of a final tidy up this afternoon, the project will be practically complete.

The National Trust are having information signs fabricated to provide information for parents, and as soon as these have been installed the playscape will be fit to open.

The signs are expected tomorrow, allowing the playscape to welcome its first users on Friday - however, if you are planning a visit to the playscape it is advisable to ring ahead and ensure the playscape has been opened (01663 762023).

Confirmation will be posted here on Friday, and pictures of the first few days of use will be posted next week.

Keep checking the blog for information on the official opening celebration, likely to be in early September.
