Proposed - Chorleywood Wonder Wood

The proposed Wonder Wood on Chorleywood Common is to be a unique play space, in keeping with the natural environment. All equipment will be made from natural, raw, untreated English Oak wood.

Funding and the proposal for this project has been agreed and approved by Three Rivers District Council, however planning permission from both Three Rivers District Council and the Secretary of State is still to be applied for. In addition, as landowners, Chorleywood Parish Council have yet to be formally approached to discuss this scheme.

What could the Wonder Wood look like?

chorleywood-play.pngThe design has been developed by Wildwood UK as part of the Council's procurement process. Wildwood UK designed the two existing Wildwood Dens on Chorleywood Common. These designs expand on the initial concepts developed and will encompass inclusive equipment, such as a basket swing and sensory items. The proposed Wonder Wood will be natural and will create a habitat as the wood will also form insect hotels.
