Don't miss this.....

hollingbury park wood walkAlongside the park is a trail that is mainly woodland and glades. The woods provide shade in the summer and shelter during the winter and the route is free from gates and stiles to make it easy to use. The path has a smooth, wide surface which makes it very popular with families with children in pushchairs and people with restricted mobility, including people using wheelchairs. Along the way there are benches to sit and enjoy the surroundings.
