Festive Reindeer Trail at Great Notley Country Park

Festive fun at Great Notley Country Park - can you help santa find his reindeer?

Ho Ho Ho! Join us at Great Notley Country Park for a bit of festive fun for all the family.

Santa has lost his reindeer and he needs your help to find the names of his replacements. Have fun in the outdoors following the trail and exploring the park.

Purchase your trail guide from the Skylark cafe from Sunday 19 December until 30 December (while stocks last) for just £2. Follow the directions and keep your eyes peeled for the trail markers along the way.

Festive outfits are welcome but not essential.

Booklet includes map, guided trail and some extra Christmas and reindeer related activities and facts.

Please note the Visitor Centre and cafe are open from 9am to 3pm daily (closed on Christmas Day and Boxing Day). The cafe is currently serving a limited menu of hot and cold drinks and snacks to take away.

The park is open from 8am to 5pm. Car parking charges apply. (Money taken for car parking is ultimately revinested into the park, it's maintenance and upkeep for visitors and the wildlife living within.)

We ask that visitors observe current COVID-19, ensure you practice social distancing whilst on the trail and in the park and respect fellow visitors.
