Things to enjoy in spring at Prior Park

Spring is one of our favourite times in the garden. There are lots of fresh green leaves and the smell of wild garlic fills the air.

Spring flowers

Spring is a time of change in the garden. The snowdrops give way to swathes of daffodils across the Summerhouse Glade, there are patches of primroses to discover and cuckoo flowers delicately speckle the banks of the top lake.

Wild garlic carpets the ground, and fills the air with its delicate scent. The pretty white flowers burst open and dance around in the breeze.  

May half term at Prior Park

Sat 29 May - Sun 6 June

An adventures in nature trail for children will be running all week through the park with 10 activities to complete. You can pick up a trail on arrival. It's free of charge though normal admission charges apply and we'd recommend booking your visit where possible during school holidays to avoid any disappointment.
