Throughout the summer months we run Families in the Woods activities and have set aside part of the woodland specifically for working with groups

Families in the Woods can take place any afternoon by request and activities include Den building, Minibeast Safaris, Animal Tracking, Art in the Park and Nature Games.

Each activity lasts for two hours and family tickets cost £20. Children must be accompanied by at least one adult and please wear clothes you are happy to get a bit mucky and sensible shoes or boots.
