There’s a whole load of activity this autumn half term holiday including dressing up for Halloween, a new family trail covering ‘Myths and Legends’ plus an opportunity to build a bat box and meet some of our bugs.

Marking Halloween has become quite a tradition here so, once again, we are offering a free child admission if they are dressed in fancy dress (and accompanied by a full paying adult). Each year, our younger visitors make such an effort and it is great fun for us to see all the different characters that come to Park to enjoy a day out.

In half term week and throughout November, the family trail will be discovering the truth behind ‘Myths and Legends’ surrounding our animals and plants in the Park. Can an owl turn its head 360 degrees? Is a snake slimy? Are pigs really dirty? These and other myths are just some of the questions that the younger visitors will be able to discover the answer to.

And there’s more! On Wednesday 30th October, between 10.30am and 12.30pm you can build a bat box to take home (additional £5 for the materials). Later on the same day, you can also ‘Meet Our Bugs’ between 1.30pm and 3.30pm.

Please note: The family trail will cost 50p with all funds raised supporting our animal conservation work. There is an additional charge of £5 for making the bat box. Meeting the bugs is free of charge but we can’t confirm which bugs will be available on the day. It’s a ‘first come, first served’ basis for both events.

The Park is now closed for the winter. Please keep an eye on our website news section and via our social media sites for updates on the animals.
