The Pheasantry Welcome Centre opened in September and currently provides visitors with drinks and snacks 9am – 6pm daily. Breakfast is available 9-11:30am, hot foot is generally available until 3pm – after then customers will still have the choice of the pre-packed sandwiches, lots of types of cake as well as soft drinks, teas and coffee (to drink there or takeaway). Although dogs aren’t allowed in the area around the cafe itself, there are plenty of picnic tables and dog tethers available in the nearby separated area.
Situated in Broom Clumps/Woodland Gardens, this new addition to the park also boasts toilet facilities for all park users, a car park that includes disabled bays and an education/community room.
The resurrected Water Gardens will officially re-open to the public on 2nd October and for approximately 5 weeks will only be available from Thursdays to Sundays whilst the final restoration work is complete – from then on will only be closed on Mondays.
The off-site restoration of Diana fountain continues and is due to be completed in November.
