DICK WHITTINGTON PARK REDEVELOPMENT PROGRAM

Our long awaited redevelopment- rebranding program is now at last underway.  The first phase of works involves the resurfacing of the driveway and completing the car park extension.

In late summer works will start for the massive Visitor Centre extensions and the new lake creation.  It will also see replacement of a lot of the existing equipment.

We have done our best to keep our regular visitors updated on our re-development project.  We are very grateful for their patience while changes are taking place and the interest being shown in what we are trying to achieve.  It is obviously disappointing to get criticisms whilst the re-branding is underway, but thankfully 99.99% of our visitors have shown great tolerance.

We continue to offer the discount price of just £2 per head for Adults.  We hope you all  continue to have a great time and our parties remain very popular. The above arrangements may vary in extremes of weather. We are quite happy to fit in any group or birthday party bookings that are made in advance, even on days that we would normally be closed.

CLIMBING WALL CHALLENGE

 

We have now completed our indoor climbing wall.  Whilst there are 45 feet of climbing to do, it is safe because all the climbing is done sideways rather than upwards.  Should anybody fall off, they only fall a few incheson to a soft mat.  It is ideal for toddlers to ten year olds but even adults are welcome to join in the fun.

 

Daily Challenge – can you climb the full length and win a prize?

BIRTHDAY PARTIES

 

We offer two types of birthday party:

 

Full-catering party

 

Bring your own picnic/buffet – held in themed Castle Room

 

Both parties run on a two hour session, although we do not watch the clock so, if the party group wants to stop on afterwards for the children to play a little longer, then that is fine.  Invitations are provided for both parties at the outset and party bags are given at the end.

 

The charge for the full-catering party is £10 per party child.  For the ‘Castle Room’ party, the charge is £7.50 per party child.  Subject to a minimum of 7 children at the party, we only charge for the children who turn up at the party.  Family and parents of other children for the party session come in free of charge.  Active siblings who are not invited to the party will be charged at the normal rate.
