Play park plan for Stonor

AN adventure play park for young children could be built at Stonor Park.

AN adventure play park for young children could be built at Stonor Park.

The Hon William Stonor, son of Lord Camoys, has submitted a planning application to South Oxfordshire District Council.

He wants to encourage more families to visit the stately home, which has been open to visitors since 1979.

He said: “There would be a really fun water and sand play area for toddlers to splash about in, a 50m zip wire and some climbing structures for older children. This is part of a programme of investments we are making in Stonor to offer our visitors.”

Timberplay of Sheffield would build the play park using natural materials, mainly timber. The company was responsible for the Princess of Wales memorial playground at Hyde Park.



In June, Stonor Park opened a new visitor centre with reception, coffee shop and lavatories. Two months before its shrubbery was opened to the public for the first time.

The district council will make a decision by March 3 and if the application is approved the play park would open in June.
