Join our Autumn Challenge
Autumn has arrived and the parks are brimming with colour. Can you find 5 or more of these seasonal sights on your next trip to one of our country parks?
We’ve created an Autumn challenge to encourage you to get exploring. Can you find 5 or more of these seasonal things on your next visit to one of our Country parks?
Collect leaves in an array of colours, enjoy a conker fight, keep your eyes peeled for a squirrel, see if you can spot a duck by the lake and look out for brightly coloured berries on the bushes or mushrooms on the ground. (Please be careful not to touch the mushrooms and berries).
