Spring into the Park for a day of free family fun

Telford & Wrekin Council has announced a brand new free family event called Spring into the Park.

Spring into the Park for a day of free family fun

Spring into the Park will make its debut on Saturday 28 March in the heart of Telford Town Park.

The event will be a seasonal celebration of the great outdoors, as well as the completion of works to the park.

Over the past two years Telford Town Park has made significant changes to its infrastructure, trails, footpaths and play areas with help from a National Lottery Grant received in 2010.

With an Easter theme, the event will be a spring extravaganza with activities happening in pockets across the park:

  • There will be a pond dipping, bird box making, bug hunting, Bird of Prey display and Archaeological dig in the Queen Elizabeth II Field in Trust, alongside scout activities.
  • There’ll be a petting farm with the chance to hold bunnies and chicks, feed the lambs and donkey rides. You will also be able to take a horse and cart ride to Stirchley Chimney.
  • And if you go down to the park, you’ll find a teddy bears picnic and an Easter egg hunt.
  • There will also be arts and crafts activities in Southwater, where you’ll be able to make Easter bonnets, lily pads to go on the lake and get your face painted.

Councillor Liz Clare, cabinet member for leisure services and culture, said: “We’re excited to announce this new event which will offer a free day out for all the family.

“Telford Town Park is a huge asset for the borough and events like this showcase the different attractions we have in the park.”
