New Centre and Forest Trail

This new shared space building was built on the site of the old forestry school.  It acts as a visitor centre, forest user amenities as well as a shared community building with an open general area which will complement the outside forest area. 

The building offers a large multi-use space with retractable seating, two multi-purpose activity rooms, kitchen facilities, an office, a store room and toilets, changing facilities and showers with dual access from within the building and from outside.  The area surrounding the building is to be landscaped with safe walking links to the existing play park, carpark and trails.

The existing trails have been developed, with the Renardine trail now a children’s magical storybook adventure trail with iconic sculptures, interactive fun/art pieces and natural inclusive play areas. The Grace Drennan Trail is now an educational nature trail with new signage displaying information about flora and fauna, ecology or cultural history. There has also been an upgrade to the current trail signage to encourage confident exploration of the forest.
