There's just so much fun to be had at Whisby Nature Park!

You can find the fantastic Little Darters' play area near theNatural World Centre, where it stretches over the water and on to the island! Loaded with unusual fun features like nature exploration towers, earth tunnels, big sand pits and a mole's eye view pod for watching mini beasts up close, plus loads of more traditional play activities too. The whole thing is free to use!

The Centre itself offers a wealth of fascinating local information along with fun guided walks led by the Lincolnshire Wildlife Trust. They also operate an exciting events program which includes astronomy talks and family holiday activities. The Whisby Nature Tots and Junior Wardens events are held monthly and suit under 5s and 11 to 16s respectively for appropriately leveled wildlife projects and outdoor seasonal activities.

There are 6 differing waymarked trails which have different qualities in terms of terrain and scenery, so it's easy to play to the kids' interests if you're not doing all of them: fancy seeing the water birds? Take the Grebe Walk! Grazing marsh and Sandhills? You'll want the Magpie! Most of the paths are level and accessible, with 30 seats and 6 bird hides spread around the walks.

It may be worth noting when you're planning your exploration of the park that the railway crossing is currently closed while they replace it with a bridge, so for now one must plan a route around it. This is true as of early 2016 but may be worth checking mid-year if they have not had an update for it and you're keen on that element!

Dogs are welcome here on a lead and permitted off the lead if well behaved around the Thorpe Lake area, so bring your baggies! So bring the kids, bring the dogs, bring the grandparents: heck - bring everybody!
