Weald Country Park

« Other Public Destinations

Five hundred acre Weald Country Park was once the grounds of Weald Hall but is now a haven for wildlife and a popular destination for families, dog walkers, horse riders and nature enthusiasts. With our Stick Man play trail, regular family events and on site grazing animals we are not only preserving habitat for wildlife but offering valuable green space for outdoor play and learning.

Children taking part in the following activities can earn stamps in their Passport to Learning:

The Stickman Play Trail
The Stick Man play trail is made up of seven different fully interactive play areas spread over 1.8km through Weald Country Park. Children and families will need to work as a team to map read and find the locations and can also explore further afield for extra secret surprises. At each location visitors challenge themselves to be brave, take measured risks and work together to complete activities such as balance logs and monkey bars. Children learn to pick themselves up, dust themselves off and try again. There is no charge to use the play trail although visitors will need to pay for pay and display parking if coming by car. Maps can also be bought for 50p if required.

Children can earn up to 2 hours in the Passport to Learning for this activity .

Family Pumpkin Carving

Families will not only learn about the traditions around Halloween but also learn teamwork and knife and tool safely as they carved their pumpkin into their chosen design. Children have the chance to explore their artistic and creative side as they choose from the templates offered to dream up their own unique image. This is a Ranger assisted activity which will be taking place in our decorated open barn.   This activity takes place on Wednesday 26th October and requires booking by calling 01277 261 343. Slots cost 10 per child including one free adult and refreshments. Additional adults are 2.

Children can earn 1.5 hours in their Passport to Learning
