Spring has sprung and so has the first of the major school holidays, leaving parents with that perennial question: what to do with the kids.... well, here’s one place that will well and truly fill one day...
Hunt for giant painted eggs in the Enchanted Forest and catch the Little Bo Peep show (April 3-6), with other events until April 19. There’s also a competition to design your own chocolate flavour: stockeldpark.co.uk
Fresh air and Spring-time family fun awaits at Stockeld Park’s Easter Adventure.
Beautifully crafted GIANT hand painted eggs, gambling ‘Live Lambs’, hopping Bunnies, Little Bo Peep show (3rd to 6th April) and an opportunity to watch in wonder at the Hatching Eggs are just some of the calendar of ‘Egg-stra’ special events taking place during the school holidays from 28 March -19 April. There is also a competition to design your own chocolate flavour and the chance for children to win a chocolate egg when completing the ‘Eggs-traordinary’ Enchanted Forest Easter Egg hunt.
All these family friendly events are in addition to Stockeld Parks’ award winning mix of outdoor activities and indoor play which include; a roller rink, Enchanted Forest filled with adventure playground areas, a huge Yew Tree maze, a giant inflatable slide, ride on electric scooters, an ice cream parlour, an indoor play zone and a delightful Gift Emporium filled with gifts and treats.
Visitors can also enjoy the creativity craft area, and relax in the licensed Woodland Cafe, serving homemade, locally sourced food, or choose to bring a picnic to relax in our large designated picnic field, with space hoppers, football nets and plenty of space for the kids to play.
Amy Thornton, General Manager at Stockeld Park, comments: “Each year we are keen to add something new and ‘egg-citing’ to our seasonal adventures. We are thrilled to see the return of our Easter Adventure, filled with outdoor and indoor adventure play. This year is even more action packed with our ‘egg-stra’ special events programme that we have ‘laid’ on for the bank holiday weekend. We hope to have a ‘cracking’ event.”
