    Build a den

    Den building

    Visit our new natural play area at the bottom of the garden (by the tea shed) and discover what nature has left you to build a den.


    Hunt for bugs

    There are lots of bugs hiding in the garden. Why not stop and look under logs and leaves and see what you can find.


    Roll down a really big hill

    Who could resist rolling down the hill by the Horseshoe walk in the middle of the garden? Make sure you check the ground first as we often have cows visiting.



    Climb a tree

    Up a tree in the garden

    Come and climb one of the trees in the natural play area - remember to keep three of your arms and legs on the tree at all times though.



    Climb a huge hill

    From bottom to top, it's a steep hill but it's worth it! Don't look back till you get to the top!


    Make a grass trumpet


     Make a grass trumpet and create a grass band with some of the lucious Prior Park grass. What's your favourite tune?



    Go bird watching

     Lots of fascinating birds call Prior Park home. Can you spot the buzzards soaring up high, or catch a flash of blue as the kingfisher speeds past? If you visit in the late spring you might even catch some fuzzy ducklings or graceful cygnets. 



    Fly a kite

    Kite flying on the Bath Skyline

     Bring your kite and enjoy the winds sweeping up the garden and watch it set sail. 


    Make a daisy chain
