Kids go FREE at Westonbirt Arboretum
1 - 31 August
Young adventurers are encouraged to explore Westonbirt this summmer with free admission, hidden play areas and wildlife trails.
Seven different play zones are located amongst the trees of the Old Arboretum on the Naturally Playful trail; built with Westonbirt wood felled as part of the arboretum's tree management programme.
Children can build their own explorer's den, protect their woodland kingdom from inside tree forts, clamber over tree stump stepping stones or simply climb in or hide amongst the trees.
Westonbirt Arboretum also has a special tree-inspired playground for under fives. The Exploratree experience, located next to the Courtyard Café, is designed to help develop young visitors' play skills and understanding of trees. Children can clamber under tree roots, encounter over-sized worms and climb into a giant bird's nest.
Find out more and download your family play map at www.forestry.gov.uk/westonbirt-families or pick one up on site from the Great Oak Hall information point between 10am - 4pm.
