Howe Park Wood Open Mornings: Plants and Trees

Howe Park Wood

20/08/2024 - 22/08/2024
9:30 to 12:30
Family friendly
Come to Howe Park Wood during the Summer Holidays for one of our exciting Open Mornings. 

This week's theme is Plants so come along to take part in free activities to learn more about trees, flowers and the other plants that live in the parks. Learn how to identify a tree by its leaves, find out how plants reproduce and take part in a woodland or flower identification trail.  

Howe Park Wood provides a home to many animal and plant species. This very special park has been designated a Site of Special Scientific Interest for its wildlife value by Natural England.

The Parks Trust manages an Education Centre inside Howe Park Wood that is only open to the public on selected dates throughout the year. Open Mornings are a great chance to see inside the Centre and take part in family-friendly activities suited to all ages.

Open Mornings are completely free for everyone and no booking is required to attend. Simply drop-in anytime between 9:30am-12:30pm on Tuesdays - Thursdays throughout the school holidays.

There is free parking available on site, public toilets and Grounds Cafe for refreshments. There are both hard surface footpaths suitable for wheelchairs and pushchairs and grass and woodchip paths deeper into the wood.
