New Skate Park

Our fantastic new Skate Park at Woodside was officially opened on 16 August 2016, with professional skateboarder demos and ice cream enjoyed in the sunny weather.


On 12 July 2016, Mayor Dunning (with the help of children from Lymington Church of England Infant School), officially opened the newly refurbished play area at Lymington Meadows in Lower Buckland Road.  The trampoline and zip line proving to be the favourite features!
