Wynyard Planetarium and Woodland Park
Wynyard Woodland Park started life as a working railway carrying freight to the ports along the River Tees.
That former railway line now offers an excellent route for walking and cycling, with linking footpaths enabling visitors to wider park including Thorpe Wood Local Nature Reserve, Tilery and Brierley Woods and the splendid Pickard Meadows (a huge, newly established wildflower meadow).
The former station house now houses an excellent café, and nearby there’s a fantastic, adventure play area in a stunning woodland setting. The park is also home to a planetarium and observatory, managed by the Cleveland and Darlington Astronomical Society (CaDAS).
