We have never been to one of the featured events at the Park, we have enjoyed many a pleasant visit though. This time was even better, having said that each visit has been quite special for all of us. It is a lovely place to visit, so lush and green with plenty of space for children to roam, without everyone feeling penned in a small area.
A giant bunny was hopping around the park, giving out high fives, cuddles and stopping for many a photo opportunity with delighted children. I cannot imagine what it must be like decked out in costume, but the bunny seemed an amicable character, in good spirits at all times…
We tried some new additions to the Park too; the donkey rides went down well. They are a complete bargain for £1.50 each in my opinion. It is the first time youngest held on his own, without me following him behind panicking he might fall off!
We did the Easter Egg hunt; walking round the park following the clues was great fun. It was a cold morning, but we soon warmed up!
Afterwards we had to test out the new soft play area. The Enchanted WoodBarn, had plenty to keep my two occupied, whilst the welcoming (and nice and toasty!) seated area in the Café was a huge perk for us worn out parents.
We watched an entertaining magic show; eldest was excited to be a magician’s assistant and was awarded with a balloon sword for his efforts!
It is great to see Greenwood Forest Park put so much thought and effort into continually improving the park. My boys were begging to come back the very next day!
The Easter Eggstravaganza is still on until Sunday 14th April, with live shows daily, Easter crafts, donkey rides and the Yellow Chick Trail during that period. So well worth a visit, I will definitely be keeping an eye on other events planned for the season on the Greenwood Forest Park website.
