'Wildwood Detective' trail
One of our animals has escaped! Can your family figure out which animal is running amok around Wildwood? Look at the clues, fill out the trail card with the correct answer and then enter into our prize draw for a chance to win vouchers.
Our resident woodsman, Steve Kirk, will be running FREE bushcraft activities throughout the park on 29th May and 2nd June. Find out how our ancestors interacted with nature, and learn how to hunt, cook and survive in ancient woodland.
How do you feed a zoo?
Our animals' dietary needs are very different. We need to give our animals the best nutrition and also provide enrichment for the animals who would normally hunt for their food. See how we do it!
Animal mask making
It only takes some paper, some colouring pens and some creative skills to create an animal mask.
