What's on

We're disappointed to say that we've had to cancel our event on 14 December. You might like to go to Widecombe-in-the-Moor and join the village in their Christmas festivities.


  • Keep your eyes peeled and you might see a kingfisher or dipper on the river
  • Try orienteering, or cycle along the old railway track
  • Enjoy walking the maze of paths through the woodland and parkland
  • See if you can spot the fairy house in the woods
  • Look out for signs of Parke's history on your travels


There's so many ways to enjoy a visit to Parke. Bring your bike, go for a run or try one of our Tracker Packs. You could also tick off loads of your 50 things to do before you're 11¾.
