The yellow route is an easy access route through the woodland which also provides spectacular views over the downs.

The paths are mainly flat, but with some surfaced slopes to navigate, there are no steps. In winter, parts of the route can be muddy.

Play area

Our play area is at the side of visitor centre. This area is on level ground, with a wood chip surface and is surrounded by a fence but can be accessed through a gateway.

Trosley Country Park is working with Playdale to bring exciting new improvements to the existing play area. With funding of £150,000 from a Public Health COVID-19 recovery fund, the end result will be a more inclusive and accessible space for all age groups and generations featuring:

  • a customised play galleon
  • cradle swings
  • new climbing frames
  • sensory features providing texture and sound and ability roundabout
  • many other features.

The play area will also be resurfaced with recycled, rubber ‘Wetpour’ safety surfacing. The all-weather, impact absorbing surfacing helps prevent injuries while children are playing.

All of the improvements have been designed to improve free access to health and wellbeing activities and to stimulate challenging, creative and sociable play. The work is due to be completed by the end of May 2022.

Toilets

We have one unisex accessible toilet adjacent to the visitor centre which is open at all times. These facilities can be reached via easy access pathways and do not require a Radar key to access them.

Toilet facilities are available at all times when the park is open to visitors, even if the café and shop are closed.
