Our tips on what to do this season

Recommended events

We regret to announce that we’ve made the difficult decision to cancel all events at our parks and places including Cressing Temple Barns and all third party run events, in light of the evolving COVID-19 public health threat and the government’s national guidance around gatherings and social distancing.

However, we're pleased to announce that we have some seasonal events to help you get into the Halloween spirit! Discover the Spooky Bat Hunt Trail at Belhus Woods Country Park this October half-term, unleash your creative side with our Halloween colouring sheet, or keep the kids active and entertained at Essex Outdoors' half-term activity days.

Explore the delights that autumn has to offer by taking part in our autumn challenge with your household, or support bubble.

Follow the tips from our Park Ranger, Laura Howles, on how to make your garden more hedgehog friendly.

Please abide by the governments latest advice when visiting our parks and places. See our FAQs for more information.
