Center Parcs has changed a lot in the last 15 years. Back in 2000, there were only three Villages – Sherwood Forest, Elveden Forest and Longleat Forest. Whinfell Forest was acquired a year later and Woburn Forest wasn’t even a twinkle on the horizon.

A lot can happen in fifteen years. So where will we be in 2030? What will family breaks look like in the future? Students from Alameda Middle School were asked to come up with their predictions of what the Center Parcs of the future will look like. They created drawings, posters, models and inspiration boards, and nine entries were chosen to be placed inside our time capsule.

Their ideas included:

  • A underground swimming paradise (that sounds scary!)
  • Lodges on tall stilts (maybe)
  • More green technology (definitely)
  • Hover boards (we hope so!)

The time capsule was buried in the Village Square at Woburn Forest on Tuesday 14th July. It will stay underground until 2030, when it will be opened to see how many of the predictions came true.
