The Welly Walk at Packwood and Playful Journeys at nearby Baddesley Clinton have both encouraged families to explore the great outdoors and they have also ensured that more people and families are using our beautiful outdoor spaces. Our natural play trail has been in place for a year now and has been enjoyed by many.

The trail is based on the events of the Gunpowder Plot and children can grab a hobby horse from the Welcome Centre and gallop across the fields, pretend to be royalty on the oversized throne, take their photo with our Guy Fawkes wanted posters and make up a tune on our wooden xylophone.
