Details

Wakefield Council invites children and their families to take part in the Room on the Broom themed adventure trail.

The trail will take visitors across Anglers Country Park on a special themed walk based on the bestselling children’s picture book, written by Julia Donaldson and illustrated by Axel Scheffler.

Starting from the Discovery Centre, the trail follows a route around the lake giving youngsters the chance to see sculptures of Witch, Cat, Dog, Bird, Frog and the terrifying Dragon! For extra fun and games along the trail, purchase an Explorer Pack for £2 from the Discovery Centre before you set off. As you journey along the route look out for the wildlife that call Anglers Country Park their home.

Some parts of the path may be muddy so sensible footwear is advised.

The Adventure Trail and Country Park are both open all day, every day with free entry.
