Some of these events include periods of standing while looking at specimens and features. A typical walk around the park is about 2 or 3 miles. Time taken can vary between 1 and 3 hours but people can leave an event whenever they like provided they can find their own way out of the park.
Officially the gates to the road into the park are closed at dusk, so if staying in the park after dark we advise people to park outside.
Where appropriate we talk about environment, flora, fauna, conservation, history, geology and attempt to answer any questions. See our previous newsletters via the links. Full newsletters appear as pdf files via the links at top of this page. If you have problems opening files email us for advice.

The Sensory Garden is open and in use by park visitors. The changing seasons will be reflected by the type of plants growing, in flower or seeding. Friends volunteers are continuing to maintain the garden and plant new plants when necessary and suitable. Regretably someone occasionally steals plants which volunteers have planted for the enjoyment of all park users.
If you want to join the volunteers just turn up on the dates and times above or contact us for more details. Even if you don't know anything about gardening this is a good place to start with the help of other volunteers.
