Family fun at Dunham Massey

Children exploring the gardens

There's lots to do for families all year round. Get hands on with activities or tick off some '50 things to do before you're 11 3/4'. Take a walk in the park and see if you can spot the herd of fallow deer. Explore the Log Pile and let your imagination run wild or help Percy the Park Keeper look after the natural spaces at Dunham.

Go wildlife spotting

Explore the park and garden and spot some of the creatures that call Dunham home. Pick up some duck food at the shop, discover the deer in the park and keep your eyes peeled for a whole host of birds and creepy crawlies!

The Log Pile

Is it a ship? Is it a castle? Will you get eaten by sharks if you fall off a beam? Visit the log pile in the north park and let your imagination take you wherever you want to go.
