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.

The lakes are teeming with life in spring. The resident swans will soon be new parents and the cygnets are sure to prove a highlight for visitors.

The heron can be spotted more frequently as he goes on the hunt for fish, and our kingfisher is sighted as a bolt of blue above the lake.

There are lots of exciting events and activities coming up in the next few months
