- Parks and Playgrounds
Ages: all ages
Venue type: Outdoor
Worden Park playground is by far the largest in Leyland and has a cool 22 pieces of equipment for toddlers (ages 2 to 6) including swings, climbing frames, springy toys and a large sand pit complete with sand diggers. There are 14 pieces of equipment for juniors (ages 7 to 12) including swings, a see-saw, climbing frames, slides, rope climbing frame and cableway.
The historic hedge maze is open to the public at all times and is one of very few such mazes which is free of charge to explore. Due to the age of the maze, visitors are asked to take care not to damage the ancient hedging and young children must be supervised at all times. Worden's maze has a lime tree in the centre and (fair warning!) also has the extra feature of having two entrances, one being the real entrance and the other being a fool's or false entrance leading only to dead ends in either direction.
The Leyland Society of Model engineers have been operating at Worden for almost as long as the park has been open to the public. They provide free rides to the public on Tuesdays, Sundays and bank holidays (dependent on the weather) around the park's wildflower meadows on a newly extended route which is now almost 1km long! Wear your good hiking boots!
Plus walled and formal gardens and an arts and crafts centre where you can sometimes see the crafts being made by professionals: cool!

We go to Worden Park quite regularly. It’s our fave! Huge enclosed playground, cafe, little steam trains, plenty of fields, lovely gardens, a maze... what’s not to love!
