Marsh Farm Country Park Wetland Trail
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 Marsh Farm Country Park car park (not the farm attraction, carry on past this, until you reach the end of the road) and turn your kids into mini explorers.
Follow the route beside the Fenn Creek (loosely marked in the booklets), 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.
Take a picnic and make a day of it. Enjoy the extra activities which include a word search and maze.
Copies of the trail booklet available near the car park while stocks last.

Enter the selfie competition to win an Explorer Pass worth £85 or a runner's up explorer goody bag.
