Families

These activities are all mentioned on our Woodland, Water and Nature pages, but we thought it would be useful for families to group them all in one place.

HALLOWEEN PUMPKIN TRAIL

Come and search for ‘Howling Harry’ and his fiendish friends in our Halloween Pumpkin Hunt. Collect your sheets at the ticket office. Hunt across the park matching the pumpkins to your sheet, filling in their names as you go. Then hand in your completed sheets at The Reverie for a Halloween themed treat. Ending November 5th.

 

 

INTRODUCING OUR NEW BUCKLAND ROVERS

5-10 year olds can now navigate our fun woodland course in one of our two Mini Land Rovers. 

£7.50 for a 20 minute session (15 minutes driving plus safety briefing) per child. £12.50 for one driver plus passenger (aged 2- 10).

Mon to Fri – 10am to 2pm, Sat and Sun – 10am to 4pm

This activity is not about speed (max speed 3-4mph). We want children to develop their hand/eye co-ordination and spacial awareness.

Each driver must be supervised by an adult, who will carry a remote cut-off switch.

While we build our online booking page please message us at hello@bucklandparklake.co.uk to book your slot.

For group bookings, parties or special events, please email hello@bucklandparklake.co.uk for more information.

Each participant should wear suitable outdoor clothing and footwear. Maximum combined weight for driver and passenger is 9 stone (56 kg). Find the course in the woodland adjacent to the ticket office. 

WOODLAND WALK

Our 1km Woodland Trail starts near the ticket hut and winds through a mixture of Scots Pine, Beech and Silver Birch trees. Look out for our nature boards along the way.

Halfway along the trail, you will come across our two awesome Woodland Viking Camps. Built and managed by The SHAC.

The trail brings you through the last woodland section and out onto the eastern bank of the lake, where you can enjoy a glorious, expansive view of the water. From there, you can choose to walk the Lake Circuit Walk, the Boathouse Walk or head back to the Picnic Lawn or Meadow.

The Woodland Walk is a woodland path with steps at the beginning. Light buggies can pass in dry conditions but the surface is not currently suitable for wheelchairs or mobility scooters.

LAKE CIRCUIT WALK

The lake circuit walk can be reached by first walking the woodland walk, or head up the track just past the ticket office to start there. The walk is a flat grassy path of just over 2km that takes you the whole way around our lake, finishing up on the meadow. 

In the North Eastern corner you will see four small islands in the lake, the domain of nesting birds. If you would like to visit one of our bird hides, just follow the signs leading from the circuit walk.

Along the way you can stop and take in the peace and quiet and the serene views on the benches we have dotted along the path.

WOODLAND ADVENTURES

Tucked in a clearing in the woods you will find our Viking Camp, complete with central campfire area, hammocks, rope swings and dens.

Built and run by The Surrey Hills Adventure Company (The SHAC). The SHAC run pre-booked Woodland Adventure Days for children aged 6-12 during the school holidays, where children can enjoy a variety of woodland activities. 

A typical day can include den building, learning how to build and maintain a fire, working with tools on wood projects, traditional craft and bushcraft, all in the safe hands of The SHAC’s specialist Woodland leaders. Private bushcraft days and celebrations are also available.

They also run a Tuesday morning Forest School for 2’s and up (with accompanying parent).

SANDPIT

As we excavated for The Reverie, we kept finding more sand. No surprises here. So we’ve put it to good use in creating a 50m2 gated sandpit for children.

Please bring your own buckets and spades.

playground

Our children’s playground, is adjacent to the sandpit and consists of a basket swing, clamber sticks and activity tower. We’ve installed four pergolas around the playground for shade.
