At East Park there's something for everyone: you can take a stroll around 130 acres of parkland, brave a ride on their Wicksteed splash boat, visit the animal education centre or enjoy afternoon tea in the cafe! It's a location that lends itself to any number of pleasing pastimes, so whether you're craving action or happy to saunter you can find space for your pace right here!
If you’re feeling brave then get up close to their indoor collection of snakes, tarantulas, millipedes and beetles! To calm your nerves afterwards, wander over to the paddocks and aviaries to see the furry and feathered friends.
Guinea pigs rub shoulders with goats and sheep, whilst rheas run alongside deer, alpacas, wallabies and showy peacocks. Plenty of easily recognisable species for the smalls but plenty of interesting varieties and a few surprises to help keep the big jobs enthralled as well.
For a special treat visit the walk-through aviary. It’s one of the largest in the country and includes Koi carp, waterfall gardens and exotic birds! A beautiful spot for a family photo, too.
We've been told it also offers a really great adventure play area with all the classic equipment and a few big surprises like trampolines and zip-wires! Maybe best not to mention it until you can verify it for yourselves though, save it for a surprise!

It may be worth checking out East Park's website to see if there are any special events or seasonal fun things to do that may be going on during the day.
We do strongly suggest you contact East Park before you set off on your family day out, just to make sure they are open and to confirm admission prices, as there is nothing worse than disappointed kids in the back of your car after a long journey.
The park is staffed daily from 7.30am until dusk.
Prices & Admission
Entry to park and animal centre is free. Please do not feed any of the animals and birds (they are on special diets and the wrong food could be harmful).
Splash Boats around £1.
