Forest of Dean Sculpture Trail has a picnic site and a children's' playground, designed by the sculptor Andy Frost.

Andy Frost drew inspiration from the history of the Dean as a working forest to provide the play furniture adjacent to Beechenhurst Lodge. His sculptures provide a stimulating experience for youngsters up to 12 years old.

Various play structures represent aspects of timber production, children can clamber over an oak tree, an old wooden ship under construction, a man and horse leading an old cartload of logs, and woodmen with a crosscut saw, modern lumberjack with chainsaw.
