Groups in the Park
There are a number of regular group activities in the Park, some have a separate web page to inform members of when events are happening or to give the general public a flavour of what we do. The Visitor Centre is open afternoons each Wednesday and Sunday, for cake and refreshments – opening times vary so check the calendar.
In addition, there is a comprehensive schedule of activities in the Park, some on the same day every week, others once a month.
