Join us for a fun-filled, child-led adventure in our inspirational Gardens, as we investigate nature through hands-on activities and outdoor exploration.

This is a chance for curious children to connect with the living environment as they explore, observe and question the natural world around them.

Each month we focus on a different, seasonal theme. Children and parents/carers will learn from nature together, helping to build confidence and a sense of adventure.

Sessions follow a relaxed routine and the majority of activities will take place outdoors, so please dress accordingly.

Getting to the venue

Sessions are 90 minutes long and held at the Green Oak Shelter in the Natural Area, at the rear of the Gardens.

Participants will be met and escorted from Victoria Gate. Please arrive 20 minutes before the activity start time to account for walking time. You may wish to bring a push chair.
