Outside you can go wild on the adventure playground, or explore the nature trails and climb to the heights of the treetop walkway and enjoy the bird’s-eye view of buds, branches and leaves.

The park has 300 hectares of grassland, moorland, woodland and ponds ensuring a haven for wildlife and providing a great day out for all ages and abilities.
