The newest features added to Stuart Park include new childrens play area, trim trail, outdoor table tennis and mini golf course!
Away from the play, the park covers about 120 acres and consists both of mature woodland and a delightful arboretum on the southern side, with spacious open parkland spread across the northern side. Two sets of lakes provide habitat for the oodles of waterfowl that live and visit here.
A big favourite with all the family is the extensive pets corner with many types of domesticated animals, fallow deer, highland cattle, llamas and goats. Get the small people up close with friendly domestic types and just watch your coat sleeves with the goats!
Their nature, heritage, orienteering and tree trails are provided within the Park, which vary in length making it easy to pick one your particular little legged ramblers can manage, and for this reason are also very popular with school visits. If you'd like quieter access to the trails phone ahead and check for big school trips to avoid!
Stewart Park houses the Captain Cook Museum commemorating his birth place which was apparently within the borders of what's now Stewart Park, although all traces of the building have now disappeared. It is marked by a granite vase which is close to the centre of the museum, something for kids to watch out for.
