Following the effects of covid-19 the refresh team will be taking some time to come together, regroup and plan ahead. As a result, we will be operating a revised timetable for the period of 4th - 15th July. We look forward to seeing you all back the week beginning the 18th July – keep an eye out for our new timetable as it develops from then onwards. If you have any questions, give us a call on 01254 682 037

Spring Activities and Crafts

Join the re:fresh Team for some fun this Spring!

The Egg Cracking Explorer Club - Toddler Trail

The jolly Explorers of Witton Park can’t wait for Spring to arrive and need your help to find the clues which will reveal the new season is here! Snowdrops, buzzing insects, daffodils, nest-building birds, tree buds and baby animals – you will need to look, hear, smell and touch the world around you as we guide you on a Springtime nature trail and CRACK a few EGGS along the way to learn how the natural world starts to grow again at the end of Winter. You can be a ‘Spring Detective’ as we work out what bulbs, buds, larvae, frogspawn and baby kittens turn into.

This is a FREE BOOKABLE EVENT and numbers will be limited due to current Covid restrictions.

Meet the re:fresh Team at the Cycle Centre for a guided toddler trail with Easter themed crafts. Suitable for 2-4 year olds.

The trail takes approximately 45-60 minutes to complete. It is flat and buggy friendly but please dress for the weather as all activities will take place outside.

Spring Babies Xplorer Trail

Can’t make our bookable events? Our Spring themed Xplorer Trail is now up in the park and will be up throughout March and April.

Do you know what a baby hedgehog is called? What about a baby sheep and a baby goat? Explore Witton Park this Spring and join in our FREE family hunt for the Springtime animals. Not only will you have to hunt out the friendly animals using the Xplorer Map , you will also have to guess the names of the baby animals you find. Great fun for all the family.

Follow the special Xplorer Map of the park and use your map reading skills to find the hidden baby animals. There are 15 colourful Easter Babies plaques to find in total. You can either follow the map on your phone or print it off along with our Xplorer Answer Sheet to take around with you.

This is a FREE buggy and wheelchair friendly FUN challenge for FAMILIES of all ages. Particularly suitable for toddlers. If children have bikes or balance bikes, this is a great way to get them active. Either print off the Xplorer map or download to your phone. Why not split your family into teams and see who can be first to find all 15 plaques. Take a photo of your favourite baby animal plaque and post it on our facebook page.

The Xplorer Trail takes around 45-60 minutes. It starts at the main pay and display car park on Witton Park. Look out for marker number 1 here- the Baby Dog! The trail leads around the playgrounds and through the woodland at the back of the Pavilion. Some paths may be boggy so wellies or boots are best.

THIS IS A COVID SAFE OUTDOOR ACTIVITY YOU CAN COMPLETE WITH YOUR OWN HOUSEHOLD. PLEASE ENSURE YOU FOLLOW THE GOVERNMENT GUIDELINES REGARDING SOCIAL DISTANCING.

PLEASE DO NOT TOUCH OR REMOVE ANY OF THE MARKERS! PLEASE AVOID CONGREGATING WITH ANY OTHER XPLORER TRAIL PARTICIPANTS AT THE MARKER POINTS!
PLEASE LET US KNOW IF YOU COME ACROSS ANY MARKERS THAT HAVE BEEN DAMAGED OR REMOVED.
