Buildings and Services
The park is home to a variety of leisure and recreation based services and clubs that are located on or immediately adjacent to the park including:
- Stable block (Redlees Gallery and Studios)
- Changing rooms/staff mess room/site office and yard complex
- Isleworth Bowling Green and Clubhouse
- Isleworth Library
- Redlees Under Fives Play Centre
- Isleworth Recreation Centre
- Isleworth Explorers Club/Buttercups Day Nursery
Although some of the above buildings are situated outside of the park’s boundaries, most enjoy direct access into the park off their premises. The cumulative list of services that these facilities provide is considerable and illustrates the importance of the Redlees area as a leisure “hub”.
As part of the Aiming High for Disabled Children project, Hounslow Council’s Short Breaks team funded development of the Redlees Play Centre in order to make an exciting and accessible play space for disabled children and young people in the borough, in consultation with parent and carers of disabled children. A log cabin was built so that there is now extra indoor play space including a soft play area and changing room facilities with hoists. Development of the original building included a new sensory room and café area. In the enclosed garden, accessible play equipment such as a bed and wheelchair swing were installed. Future plans include a wheelchair accessible tree house which will be built this year.
The One O’Clock Club has been running successfully from the Centre for many years but is now also open for alternate Sunday drop-ins between 10.00 am – 2.00 pm for families with disabled children and is also open for drop-ins during the summer holidays in the evenings between 5.00 pm – 8.00 pm with a youth club for disabled 11-18 year olds taking place at the same time. A youth club for disabled young people aged between 16-25 years takes place every Sunday afternoon between 3.00 – 6.00 pm throughout the year. The Hounslow Play team also organise playschemes for children with autistic spectrum disorder at the Centre during the holidays.
The Centre is also used during term-time by various community groups such as local childminders, the Hounslow Portage service and the Parent Partnership service and a local parent support charity, Parents In Touch who all work with families with disabled children and young people.
