Located at Ferryhill Station, in a residential area at the rear of Surtees Terrace and George Street, the Doorstep Green is maintained by Ferryhill Town Council predominantly as a play area. The Doorstep Green comprises a network of paths, brand new play equipment (installed 2018), youth shelter and outdoor fitness area. A newly developed nature trail has recently been developed at the site, thanks to a cocktail of external funding being secured. For those with an artistic streak, the stunning entrance feature and seating, designed by Artist and Sculptor Graeme Hopper, is something to behold.
Ferryhill Town Council who owns the Doorstep Green together with the Friends Of Ferryhill 2018 group are keen to maintain the sites reputation as being a welcoming, safe and accessible recreation area for local people, visitors and particularly children to enjoy.
The Surtees Doorstep Green has been awarded the prestigious Green Flag Status, which Ferryhill Town Council are committed to maintaining in future years. For more information about the Green Flag Awards Scheme please view the Green Flag website.
