We also offer seasonal, self-guided activity trails. The Children’s Education Garden encourages discovery of the natural environment in a fun way. All ages can explore and discover, there are opportunities to make music with the bamboo chimes, smell the herbs growing and discover the wildlife in the small ponds.

  • Sorry no tree climbing, ball games, scooters and bicycles/tricycles, rollerskates and skateboards.

What's on for children and families



Geocaching is an outdoor treasure hunting game. Players try to locate hidden containers, called geocaches, using GPS-enabled devices such as mobile phones, iPads or GPS receivers such as Garmins etc. Inside the containers are log books the players can write in, and small treasures which regular geocachers swap and trade so the box contents are ever-changing!
