Florence Court's natural play area is a great spot to start ticking off those 50 things to do before you're 11 3/4.

The natural play area  at Florence Court is located just behind the house and has plenty of activities to discover. There are lots of tree stumps, branches, and other natural bits and bobs to get experimenting with. Discover what's hidden in a tree (no. 22), create some wild art (no. 18) or get some branches together and get building a den (no. 4).

Have a go at adding to the nest of willow, try the rope swing or make some music on the wooden zylophone! The rangers here make new additions regularly so that there's plenty investigate.

There are a number of picnic benches available, and close-by car-parking if you prefer not to park at the Visitor Centre. Close to the main house, shop and tea-room, it's a perfect secluded spot to bring your family and wile away a sunny afternoon.
