World Book Day 2024 - Stick Man Trail

Calling all Preschoolers, celebrate World Book Day 2024 by taking part in the FREE Stick Man trail around the park!

Come down and visit our fun-filled activity trail featuring popular picture book character Stick Man, which will be open on Thursday 7th March. The self-guided trail is aimed at encouraging children to get outdoors and explore the natural world and find out how things grow. If you want to ‘twig’ how much fun the trails can be, then visit us 10am to 1pm.

We are one of a very select group of city farms, community gardens and care farms in the UK that have been chosen to host a Stick Man trail, which have been created by Social Farms and Gardens, the UK wide charity supporting communities farm, garden and grow together.

The Stick Man trail (installed thanks to the support of Magic Light Pictures) is based on the much-loved Stick Man picture book written by Julia Donaldson and illustrated by Axel Scheffler.
