Belhus Woods Wetland Trail for all the Family
Enjoy our FREE trail this May half term with the family, and discover fascinating facts about wetlands along the way!
We’ve got just the thing for you and your kids this May half term holiday.
Head to Belhus Woods Country Park where you can pick up a trail booklet from the café for FREE and treat yourselves to a well-deserved coffee at the same time.
Turn your kids into mini explorers. Follow the route (loosely marked in the booklets), chase through trees, linger around the lakes and zoom across the meadows.
Hunt the trail markers and find the letters to make the mystery word.
Discover fun and fascinating facts about Wetlands and wildlife, and see what you can spot along the way.
Enter the selfie competition to win an Explorer Pass worth £85 or a runner's up explorer goody bag.
Enjoy the play areas and make a day of it. Take the booklets home and enjoy the extra activities which include a word search and maze.
*Booklet and trail brought to you by the Essex County Council Floods Team.
