Summer of Play at Newark Park

Join in with the Summer of Play 2024

  • Booking not needed
  • Free event (admission applies)

There’s lots of fun to be had this summer at Newark Park. From Saturday 20 July to Sunday 1 September 2024, join us for dragon-themed activities around the garden.

From hunting for treasure to spreading your dragon wings, there's something for everyone to try. You can even purchase your very own Spike the dragon pin badge to take home.

Why not enjoy an ice cream in the tea pavilion or relax at a shady picnic spot in the garden?

Put your sun hat on and come and make the most of being outdoors this summer.
