Trails will cost £3 for each child, and normal admission charges apply. The last trails will be sold at 3.30pm so you have time to complete the trail and collect your egg. Are you ready for a nature adventure?

Parkland Adventures

There's plenty to do outside at Basildon Park.  Discover our play area for little ones at the beginning of the woodland walk, complete with ball run stations. There's also play stations in the parkland to find on the green walking route, with more ball run stations, a bug hotel and den building area. Bring some tennis balls with you and see how fast they can go.
