Craggy Island Ltd and Guildford Borough Council have agreed a lease for Peacock Wood in Stoke Park., Guildford, Surrey. The lease will allow the company to build and operate the largest tree top adventure activity park ever built in the UK all within the woods at the north end of Stoke Park.
This ambitious project has been 3 years in the planning stages, since the directors of Craggy Island (Guildford’s indoor climbing super centre), first approached the Parks and Leisure department at GBC with their initial ideas for Wild Wood Adventure. This coincided with GBC’s own plans to reinvigorate the park and to create a leisure hub near the town centre, the park already hosts Guildford Spectrum and the Lido.
The construction phase is set to start during early January 2014 and carry on through to the end of March with the aim to be operational before the Easter school holidays.
Wild Wood Adventure will consist of 2 junior circuits at lower levels and 2 Adult courses at higher levels throughout the woods. These will include everything from simple wobbly bridges to extreme challenges set high in the tree tops – with easy options for those who aren’t quite as brave as they thought they were! All will be accessed from the 15 metre central tower which will also offer a number of options to reach the ground via either giant dual zip wires (to race your friends), the free fall descender or the stairs!
In addition to the treetop courses Wild Wood Adventure will also have a 12 metre climbing tower and team building activities including Jacobs ladder, trapeze, crate stacks, abseiling and more which will be available for corporate, school and group bookings throughout the year. Fresh coffee and snacks will also be available from the new reception kiosk being built adjacent to the bowling greens and the new parking area.
