Suitable for all ages
Venue type: Outdoor
Brokerswood Country Park has lots to do and see and is suitable for all ages. There are several adventure playgrounds for the kids, plus beautiful woodland walks to enjoy. You can visit for the day, or stay for a camping holiday: either way, you won't run out of things to do, that's for sure!
If you want to shoot arrows like Robin Hood, their regular archery days will let you try your hand at this traditional sport, under the supervision of fully trained instructors of course! It seems one need only be tall enough to manage the bow, so one for most ages, this.
Canoe taster sessions are offered throughout the year and take place on the 5 acre lake, with qualified instructors. Placid waters and pro supervision: an ideal environment for the kids (and you!) to learn some boat craft.
Anyone aged 10 or over can try one of the region's highest outdoor climbs, up a 55ft (16.5m) high Scots pine tree! Eek! Participation here encourages climbers to make use of natural holds and branches, plus specially desgined grips, so it's clearly best that the kids have a little experience to get the maximum fun and minimum terror out of it. They can also use ice picks if they're willing to be trained in it!
The Tarzan Trail is a great family activity if you've all got the nerve for it! Negotiate a variety of challenges as you swing, climb and balance your way through the course up in the tree canopy. Under 9s must be accompanied by an adult. Great! You've got an excuse to join in!
There is also a Willow Weaving course, where anyone aged 11 or over can make beautiful items from willow and hazel!All activities must be prebooked.
A variety of themed birthday party packages are available too, plus various events during school holidays.
