Come and visit Howe Park Wood this summer for our guided family-friendly pond dipping sessions to discover what amazing minibeasts are lurking beneath the water. We will provide the necessary equipment and teach you all about healthy pondlife and the fascinating creatures you will find.

Sessions will be held every half hour with our first session starting at 10:00 and our last session starting at 14:30. One family ticket covers up to 5 guests.

Our Education Centre will also be open to the public from 10:00-15:00 and is free to visit. We will have artefacts on display such as nests, skulls and feathers that are found across our different parks, nature-themed challenges, and self-guided trails.

Howe Park Wood is one of the city’s jewels, a tranquil oasis, humming with wildlife and colour. As well as being home to a wide variety of wildlife, Howe Park Wood boasts more than 200 plant species, some so rare that English Nature has designated it a Site of Special Scientific Interest for its wildlife value.
