Great activities / places of interest within walking distance
Wodson Park facilities have been used for International Basketball to 24hr race walking, and each year the venue hosts the Special Olympics - a fantastic accolade. Boasting excellent indoor and outdoor facilities this site has plenty to entertain the kids!
