Come out to play this summer at Clumber Park

We've got something for everyone this summer, with interactive family fun, a community art project and bug hunting.

This summer, Clumber Park, with thanks to Sports England will invite families to pick up the Summer of Sport challenge card and 'Get Set Go' to inspire getting active in the outdoors. Get your challenge card from the Discovery Centre.

The natural play area 'Leaping Bar Wood' will also be offering a range of different activities from den building, to bug hunts, to storytelling sessions.
