W icksteed Park has a host of new attractions for 2018 and we have five family passes to give away so you can enjoy them for free.
The park in Kettering, was founded in 1921 by Charles Wicksteed as part of his vision to inspire and encourage play as part of families’ health and wellbeing, and has just begun one of its most thrilling chapters.
Work is nearing completion on the Historic Heart project, which has restored the central Piazza and Precinct to provide an improved welcome to the park, with a new visitor centre, shops and food outlets.
There are also lots of new attractions for visitors to enjoy at the park this year, such as Sycamore Circle, which provides a wonderful blend of nature and fun.
Children can also clamber over the branches of Spider Oaks or brave the Tree Top Walk, a 90-metre walkway of activities and obstacles suitable for adults and children alike.
For those too small for the play attractions there are meerkats, ponies and alpacas to see.
The park also boasts the fantastic new Sway Rider wave swing and the adrenaline zone zipwire and activity tower, which includes an air bag jump.
If you want to stay for more than a day, the park has top quality camping and caravanning facilities overlooking the lake, with facilities including a toilet and shower block, catering and a newly refurbished Ideas cafe.
