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.

 

OPENING TIMES 2018
The Visitor Centre will be open at weekends (Saturdays and Sundays) from 10 a.m. to 5p.m. and, of course, open every day during the School Holidays, but closed weekdays when the children are at school.
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.

Added in 2015, this is a very safe activity as the climbing is sideways, not upwards. The children are therefore just above a soft padded landing. Achieve the climb without stepping
down and get a Certificate and small prize.
