With 40,000 trees, footpaths, orienteering course, interpretative boards, play area and picnic tables, this is a great place for all the family
One of the first areas of planting following the creation of the National Forest, Swadlincote Woodlands is now home to over 40,000 trees, wildflower meadows, ponds and plenty of wildlife.
Footpaths criss-cross the 80-acre park and there are two trails and an orienteering challenge for a more informed exploration of the area. Lots of conservation work can be seen being undertaken on the site.
Picnic tables, a children’s play area and toilets make it a great place to spend time exploring or just relaxing.
