Parkwood is investing in the future of millions of people throughout the UK.

These are just some of the ways in which Parkwood companies are working together to help improve the nation’s health for a better future.
Prior to 2014 the Group was wholly owned by Parkwood Holdings plc, a company which was listed on the London Stock Exchange.
Parkwood Leisure Holdings Limited owns Parkwood Holdings Limited (the former holding company) which in turn owns Parkwood Leisure, Parkwood Creative and Parkwood Project Management.
