Wetherby Town Council owns and maintains most of the parks and open, green space recreational facilities in Wetherby, including Sandringham Park.
Sandringham Park is a ‘Field in Trust’ green space which means that it is protected so that it will be available for the people of Wetherby forever.
The Town Council is grateful to the Friends of Sandringham Park which is a group of local volunteers who improve the park by undertaking planting, conservation and other projects and help with maintenance like litter picking and weeding. They have been instrumental in helping to care for the park since the group was formed in 2010.
In January 2009 an area of the park was leased to Leeds City Council and a playground was created. That lease ends in early 2024 and it has been agreed that Wetherby Town Council will take back responsibility for the whole site.
With the lease ending and the play equipment coming towards the end of its working life the Town Council has an opportunity to ask residents what they would like for the next phase of Sandringham Park’s development.
It is the Town Council’s mission to enhance Sandringham Park as a safe, peaceful green space which can be enjoyed by all people.
