During the 1970s and 1980s, when the current generation of parents were children, they enjoyed more than two hours of outside play each weekday and a further nine hours at weekends! According to research by JCB Kids, today’s youngsters venture outside for just over an hour each weekday, and less than five hours on Saturdays and Sundays.
Great Oaks at Wickhurst Green, Broadbridge Heath, provides families with the opportunity to take full advantage of an active lifestyle that both children and their parents will enjoy. The homes are positioned along attractive tree-lined avenues, with extensive planting, ponds and mature oak trees. A network of footpaths and cycle ways run through the development and across the landscaped green areas, creating ideal open spaces for children to explore and play.
Great Oaks is the first available phase of Wickhurst Green; an extension to the existing village of Broadbridge Heath, and will provide range of new homes and local amenities including shops, a proposed doctor’s surgery, a pub and family restaurant, as well as highly sought-after allotments.
Wickhurst Green will also provide a new location for a primary school with playing fields and several sports pitches so children will be able to access the after-school sports clubs close by. There will also be two large play areas designed for a range of age groups, so older and younger children have every opportunity to be active and enjoy life outside at Wickhurst Green.
