The pine plantations at Silloth are a key feature of The Green, being part of the original Victorian planting scheme and lying within an AONB and a Conservation Area. The plantations have been used by local youngsters for many years as an informal play area. As part of the Silloth Green project, it was decided to create a dedicated woodland play area in one of the plantations, in order to support and encourage appropriate use by local youngsters and visitors.
Working with a specialist play company, proposals were developed for a new woodland play area. Equipment is woven in amongst the trees, with a series of new woodchip footpaths weaving their way through the woodland between new play features and providing access to scenic new picnic areas sheltered from the coastal winds.
