Below are just a few of the attractions we have in the Park.

Toddlers Play Areas

There are a number of locations within the Park designed especially for toddlers. These offer a range of exciting and engaging play equipment for younger ones in the family to enjoy, giving hours of fun!

Animal Farm and Petting Barn

Take a walk to our Animal Farm to visit all your favourite farmyard friends! You can see our Shetland ponies, donkeys, sheep, chickens rabbits, pigs, goats, and our Alpacas.

Why not have a go at feeding our goats and sheep? Animal feed can be purchased from the admission desks. You can also join in our animal petting sessions, which are held in our petting barn! Please ask at Reception for further details.

Please note that during low season, whilst the petting barn is open as usual, there will only be a limited selection of our larger animals

Jumping Pillow

‘This attraction has a height limit of 1.32m. Look on whilst your children bounce away to their hearts’ content! Our colourful jumping pillow allows our smaller visitors to enjoy the freedom and excitement of leaping in the air!

Please note no Food, Drink, Shoes or Spectacles are allowed on the pillow for health and safety purposes.

Snakes and Ladders

Climb any of the ladders to the top of the hill to see the beautiful views of the Park! Then, choose from a selection of slides and enjoy the thrill as you hurtle down! Be warned: they are fast!

Sand Pits, Water Play and Diggers

Several sand play areas are available, some with additional play equipment provided!

Bring your bucket and spade and see who can make the biggest sand castle! Take a trip to our water play – pump the water through the wooden channels and watch it cascade over the edges! Then, try our diggers – can you operate the controls?

Indoor Soft Play Area

Our indoor play area is designed for those aged 2 and under only! This provides somewhere for the very young to play freely and in safety with a variety of indoor play equipment, whilst allowing you to relax and just watch on!

Miniature Railway

Our miniature train is a perfect miniature replica of an engine used within the Woolwich Royal Arsenal. That locomotive itself, was a copy of the original locomotive which was built in 1928 in Bristol, a 1m guage engine used in the South African mining industry. Our locomotive built by the same company in Bristol in 1991, is a 7 1/4" guage diesel hydraulic locomotive powered by a Kubota 3 cylinder 850TC diesel engine.

Named after the Duke of Wellington’s grand-daughter, 'Charlotte', she will gracefully take you on an exciting trip through our woodlands. See how many animals you can count on your journey!

The train generally operates daily, but this can vary depending on weather conditions. Please check prior to your arrival for the operating times. An additional fee of £1.50 applies. Discounts are available for multiple tickets purchased.

Please Note: We are currently having a new track installed and train delivered. This means that the Miniature Railway will not open for 2017 until Easter. We will post further updates on our website and social media when they are available.

Mini Golf

Play our 12 hole mini golf course, a challenge for all ages. Pick up your clubs from the admissions desks. Please note that a £10 deposit is required for up to 6 clubs.

Welly Wheels

Please Note: Welly Wheels is only open during weekends and school holidays and will not be able to open during adverse weather conditions.

These automated jeeps are for children aged 4-10 years. Watch as they drive themselves around on our woodland track! Please note that Welly Wheels is subject to weather conditions and that an additional fee applies.

Splash Zone!

This attraction is open from 10:30am to 5:00pm daily and suitable for all ages up to 8 years old. Let your children play in safety walking through our water spouts, crawling through a water arc or sitting under our water umbrella, whilst you sit back and watch with a cup of coffee- bliss!!

We are sorry to say that on THURSDAY 23rd OCTOBER THE PARK WILL BE CLOSED.

This is due to essential maintenance from Scottish and Southern Electric which is out of our control.

We apologise for any inconvenience caused. The Park will reopen at 9:30am on Friday 24th October.

Thanks now take me to the site...
