Splash in puddles, mix a mud pie, make music, crawl like a caterpillar and create your own den. Explore our new woodland walk at Preston Park Museum and let your imagination run wild!
Getting out into the fresh air is a great way to spend time together, learn about nature and build confidence in children. Wellies and waterproofs highly recommended.
Our Woodland Welly Walk will take place every Wednesday (during term time) from 10am – 12 noon.
Do I need to book?
No the session is drop-in between 10am and 12 noon so just turn up on the day.
When is the Woodland Welly Walk?
It will take place every Wednesday during term time from 10am -12 noon.
How much is it?
It’s free with your museum ticket. All of our tickets can be used as many times as you like throughout the year. You can see our museum admission prices here.
Who is this event suitable for?
The Woodland Welly Walk is aimed at children under 5.
Where will it take place?
In the woodland area at the back of the museum. The woodland is within the footprint of the museum so you will need to purchase a museum ticket to enter.
Is it suitable for pushchairs/wheelchairs?
Our Welly Walk takes place along a woodland path so expect un-even surfaces and mud. There is an incline at the entrance/exit of the walk, so may not be suitable for all pushchairs/wheelchairs. There will be space to park your buggy nearby (please be aware that any items are left at your own risk and the buggy park will not be locked/supervised).
What should we wear?
Please dress appropriately for the weather. We recommend wearing wellies, waterproofs and clothes you don’t mind getting muddy. In spring/summer there may be brambles and nettles so please wear clothes which cover little legs and arms.
Are dogs allowed?
No unfortunately only assistance dogs are allowed as the event takes place within the museum grounds.
Children must be supervised by an adult at all times.
