Family adventures this April at Ilam Park

Spring lamb at Ilam Park

Spring is arriving at Ilam Park and there are plenty of things for families to see and do over the Easter holidays.

Become a Spring Spotter at Ilam Park during the Easter holidays 

We're doing something new this spring!

Signs of spring are now all around us and the Spring Outdoors Trail will take you on a family friendly adventure in Ilam Park to discover lambs, spring flowers and birds. Please wear wellies or suitable footwear as it's likely to be muddy. 

Happening everyday from 30th March - 28th April, pick up your Spring Outdoors trail sheet from the shop for £2 (between 11am - 4pm). Use all of your senses as you explore Ilam Park - smell the wild garlic, watch the lambs frolicking in the sunshine and hear the birds singing. At the end of the trail, collect a gift for nature as your prize. 

Dogs on leads are welcome to join in too.  Remember the Spring Outdoors trail is happening everyday over the Easter holidays.

Ideal for families and groups, the orienteering course at Ilam Park is available all year round, whatever the weather, and is a nice challenge for older children who enjoy exploring outdoors. Along the way you may meet sheep and lambs so dogs should be kept on leads when completing the course.

Tasty treats and hot lunches are served in the Manifold Tea-room at Ilam Park daily, and there are also drinks and snacks available in the stableyard for you to take away and sit in the gardens or parkland too. If it is warm enough, why not bring along a picnic and have a springtime picnic?
