Family activities in Morden Hall Park

Local older people have fond memories of visiting the park when they were children. We have welcomed them back with their children and grandchildren. Just like the last owner Mr Hatfeild, who ran parties for local school children, we have loads of activities for families in the park today.

What will you do?

Whether your enjoying time together as a family or looking for something more structured, we have loads on offer for families in the park.

Adventure play area

A favourite with all of our visitors, our adventure play area was designed to encourage children to take a more adventurous look at play. There's swings, a play structure, and a zipwire to help let off steam and imagine your own adventures.

50 Things to do before you're 11 3/4

Some of the best fun you can have is outside, but the National Trust is aware that sometimes its difficult to find ways to help children engage with the outdoors in a way that's fun and informative. To help, we've created the 50 Things to do before you're 11 3/4 list which has 50 different outdoor activities for children to do, from climbing trees to playing conkers. To help get started, pick up a "50 Things" scrapbook from a leaflet holder on site and start exploring.

Little Explorers

Little Explorers is for children aged 2 to 5 years with their parents or carers and runs on Mondays during term time. Little explorers gives children a chance to explore the world around them and learn about minibeasts, the weather or planting and growing. It’s a popular weekly activity, which runs in the morning and again in the afternoon. We can only take up to 15 little ones, so arrive early to the monring sessions to get a place, or book on in advance to the afternoon session to be guaranteed a spot.
