We’re branching out! Come down and visit our fun-filled activity trail featuring popular picture book character Stick Man, which will be open on Thursday 16th Feburary and Sunday 9th July. The self-guided trail is aimed at encouraging children aged 3-7 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 11am to 2pm. Our Classics in the Park event is also taking place on July 9th date so there will be something for all the family!
