Park Explorers - activities for under 5s (Dec 6, Jan 10, 17, 24, 31 and Feb 7)

Our Park Explorers group is for children aged 2-5 years old and their parents/carers. Together we learn about the natural world around us, with a different outdoor theme each week.

  • Booking not needed

Park Explorers discover the nature of Morden Hall Park through led activities and stories. The beautiful parkland setting of grassland and woodland makes the perfect location for early years learning all through the seasons.

Sessions are on term time Monday mornings, following the Merton school term.

Meeting point: the picnic lawn near the Snuff Mil

£5 per participating child (those under 2 also need a ticket if participating).

Drop in on the day, no pre-booking possible, places limited. Registration begins 10 - 15 minutes before each session.

As places are limited and our group is popular, we recommend also making an alternative plan for your visit to the park, to avoid disappointment.

Please note: sessions will not run on Mondays outside of school term times, including Easter, bank holidays, half terms, summer holidays and Christmas.
