Have You Tried Our Activities Website?

Children and parents can experience some of the fun of a day out at Wicksteed Park by going online, thanks to our activity website. The Wicksteed Park Activity Zone features a welcome message from our park founder Charles Wicksteed and his dog Jerry! Little ones can download pictures to colour in and play games such as helping Charles and Jerry to build a slide, search for creatures on a nature trail map and pond dipping for plants and insects. For the adults there is a Parents Zone which includes ideas for a day out at the park and maps and trails to print out and keep, such as a guide to the new nature trail. Our Managing Director had this to add: “The Activity Zone website is full of fun, engaging activities for children and the parents’ zone is aimed at providing useful information so adults can plan a trip to the park. “We wanted to engage with children and families in an innovative and modern way, not to encourage them to spend more time on their computers, but to show them a glimpse of what goes on at the park and encourage them to come down, get some fresh air and see for themselves.” The Activity Zone can be accessed by going to activities.wicksteedpark.org/games/home.html or via the button below: Visit the Activities...
