Himley Woodland Play Area

We’re exciting to announce that work is set to begin on our new woodland children’s play area at Himley Hall and Park later this month (April 2024).

The play area will feature a large play tower, including a spiral slide, rotating carousels, a zip line, seesaws, rocking horses, and several swings designed for children and toddlers to use.


It will be located in the woodland of the park, transforming an area near the former tennis court and pavilion into a safe, outdoor space for children to keep active and have fun.


In keeping with its leafy surroundings, the play area will be constructed using mostly timber with a mix of grassland, a loose mulch surface, and natural wood chip paths separating the various pieces of play equipment.

The play area concept visuals have been created by Wignall & Moore, on behalf of site contractors Eibe Play Ltd.

The work follows a successful public consultation in 2021 and planning permission from South Staffordshire Council, whose boundaries cover the park.

Contractors Eibe Play Ltd will begin work on the installation of the play area on Friday 3 May. The site is expected to be ready for use in the summer.

We would ask visitors to take extra care while heavy machinery and delivery vehicles are on site, particularly during the first week while the play equipment is being delivered between Tuesday 7th and Thursday 9th May. Inevitably with any scheme there is an element of disruption and while we expect this to be minimal while the play area is being constructed, we will of course ensure that visitors to the park are aware of any disruption as soon as possible.  For the most part we expect that the park will be unaffected by the works and car parks remain fully open.

Himley Hall and Park will remain open as normal during the construction of the play area. Visitors are welcome between 7.30am and dusk. The coffee lounge is open daily between 9.30am and 4pm.
