Forest Park is one of our favourite places to go as a family. There is so much to cater for any age
As an adult I am more than happy
pottering about this park I love how green it is and being out in the fresh
air. Some parks are just too built up
and slightly overwhelming.
But when at
Greenwood Forest Park you do have a pleasant stroll around woodland as you gradually
do the attractions. Plus all that fresh
air helps my boys sleep better at night, which is always a winner! The beautiful carved wooden animals dotted
around the Park are also very popular with children.
We went on Tuesday and had a magical day. The boys enjoyed archery, eldest managed to
hit the target and youngest managed to look adorable. I managed to get out of
having a go as the queue was building and I would have probably shot myself in
There was a well-equipped
toddler village for the 0-3’s, we were blessed with good weather but if it is
raining its great to shelter here and you can relax and know your children are
Okay I admit it we sneaked the four year old in for review purposes – don’t tell them 😉
A new attraction
opens tomorrow called The Enchanted WoodBarn, which will cater
for older children. So again whatever
the weather you can be guaranteed a lot of fun in Greenwood Forest Park.
Hubbie was particularly
fond of the barefoot trail, which was a lovely sensory experience for all of
us. We walked across water, sand,
stones, wood chippings and hay to name a few.
Hubbie said at the end his feet have not felt this soft in ages! So a trip to Greenwood Forest Park is
cheaper than getting your feet done at a Spa!
There is just so much to
see and do:
The boys enjoyed shouting “WHEEEEEE” on the green run slides
We sailed on a boat,
hubbie definitely needs more practise with his oar! Luckily we had no people behind us!
We admired the cute
bunnies and youngest blew them lots of kisses!
We pedalled like crazy
on the moon karts and burnt off our chocolate bar pudding!
The boys enjoyed
bouncing around on the giant jumper (hopefully it might mean they stop using
our bed as a trampoline for a little while!)
The boys also managed to drive
tractors and not run over my toes…
The staff were all
friendly and helpful and really made us feel welcome. For £37.20 for a family of four at the height of the season it
really is worth every penny! In the school
holidays there is daily entertainment too in the Forest Theatre. We have seen a pirate before, he had a snake
and everything eldest was impressed when mummy was dragged on stage as a
volunteer! I thought I was going to
have a glass of water tipped on my head but with a little magic I luckily left
events change all the time and they really do think of everything! Magicians, Owls, maypole dancing… you need
to keep going back to Greenwood Forest Park so you do not miss out! Keep an eye on their website for more information and see some of the other attractions like the Green Dragon Rollercoaster (boys decided not to brave it this time!).
So why not enter the competition to see for
yourself how fabulous it really is? This competition will close on the 2nd of June.
