Details

Saltcoats Park and Compass Gardens can be found close to the town centre in South Woodham Ferrers along Ferrers Road or Creekview Road.

The parks offer a range of outdoor facilities within a large green space and are home to South Woodham Ferrers Cricket Club and South Woodham Rugby Club. As well as grass sports pitches there is also a skateboard park, an Outdoor Gym and two children’s play areas, one on each site.

Compass Gardens is a more intimate space with ornamental and herbaceous beds. It has a nautical theme with full size anchors in some of the bedding areas. There is a 'Marshland Mosaic' wall in the centre, created with the help of local artists and school children, surrounded by a newly planted maze which will add to the overall character of the garden when it begins to mature.

The park also links to Woodham Fen, a marshland area rich in salt marsh plants and unusual birds. The Fen makes up part of the Woodham Ring footpath and is a great place to take a walk by yourself, with family or the dog.

Park facilities include:

•Children's play area - with new play equipment
•Skateboard park
•Basketball hoop
•Outdoor gym equipment
•Sports pavilion
•Football, cricket and rugby pitches
