Family Fun Week 24th - 28th July 2017

Our 3rd Annual family fun week is fast approaching.  We have some fantastic and unusual activities for you all this year.  For the sporting enthusiasts we have Kwik Cricket, kindly hosted by Justin Brookes of Ampthill Cricket Club, Nordic Walking for juniors, kindly hosted by Elaine from Walk2Fitness, Rounders by our very own Phil Nichols and Tennis, kindly hosted by Justin Brookes.  If you enjoy nature and the outdoors then you will love our den building sessions, our park safari themed treasure hunt, a real life urban safari with meerkats, snakes, spiders, and a range of creatures for you to get up close and personal with.  The Greensand Trust rangers are hosting their ever popular bug lab and nature trail and due to popular demand the Redbornestoke Morris Dancers are hosting their Morris Dance workshop again.  There is also orienteering for juniors, kite making, art in the park, traditional games, and so much more for you to enjoy.  

.....and all for only a £1.00 donation per activity to our Friends of Ampthill Great Park community group who are fundraising to improve disabled access to the park.

After the success of our Capability Brown guided walks by our Friends group last year we have a couple of dates for Guided Walks exploring the wealth of history in our beautiful park.  For this year we can now offer the use of our Tramper off-road mobility scooter for those that would like to take part by have physical restrictions.  The mobility scooter will need to be booked in (although the walks themselves are not on a pre-book basis).  Please contact Lindsay on 01525 404355 or email
