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
