Attraction Information

Finding something that’s fun for teenagers as well as toddlers can be a real challenge! More often than not, you’re pleasing one at the expense of the other however not at Great Notley Discovery Centre and Park!

This country park and play trail covers 100 acres of open space and features a 1.2km play trail with a giant seesaw, climbing forest, tyre swings, sand pits, rope climbers, slides and forts. Bigger children can fly like their favourite super hero characters on the sky ropes, while the little ones make the most of the water play area!
