FREE activities will be on offer at an open day in Blakeney Woods.
There will be bushcraft, archery, nature walks and sculpture for visitors to the first open day at the Doxford Park woods – opposite The Box, in the Hall Farm Road.
It runs from 10am to 2pm on Saturday.
Chairman of the Friends of Blakeney Woods, Dave Rylance, said: “We are hoping to increase positive users of the woods.
“It’s quite a rare environment at the moment to have a park like this right in Sunderland, and at the minute it’s being destroyed by groups of lads.
“We are trying to turn this round a bit.”
