Clifton Park is certainly beautiful, but once they're done looking at it (for about 30 seconds if they know what else is in store!) head over to the crazy golf and miniature funfair! There are loads of rides for the smalls including little roller coasters, water rides, bumper cars, mini golf and arcade games! Obviously these things charge separately so bring your pocket money, kids!

They have a tremendous seasonal Splash Park here too, whose features include motion triggered and dancing style spray jets, plus paddling pool and play stream, just the job for a summer's day! Plus several patches of traditional playground equipment for dry fun too.

While you're there, why not up the educational value of your day and visit the park's Georgian house containing Clifton Park Museum! Journey through the history of the borough from geological formations to Saxon villages and the age of steel, featuring high-tech displays and interactive exhibits to help keep the kids' attention!

Clifton Park also has tennis courts and bowling greens available for you to hire, which are managed separately: check postings on site to get contacts.
