Dewsbury Country Park Open Day 25 July 2015

Dewsbury Country Park Open Day 25 July 2015

Be one of the first to explore the largest new woodland in the north at the Dewsbury Country Park Open Day this Saturday 25 July 2015.

Visit between 10am and 4pm to take part in free outdoor activities, fun for all the family.

There will be lots to do, but here are our top 5 tips:

1. Take part in the golden bear hunt, to find one of the 500 handmade clay bears that are being hidden across Kirklees as part of the Bear Hunting festival.

2. Try the Mountain Trike Ramble – mountain trikes are part wheelchair/part mountain bike and mean that almost anyone can enjoy the thrill of mountain biking whatever their level of mobility.

3. Act like Bear Grylls and take part in den building and wild food foraging

4. Build a scrap wood sculpture

5. Simply ramble – explore the 1,000 meters of footpath, including an accessible route, ideal for those with wheelchairs and pushchairs.

The park is on the former Lower Spen Valley Landfill site between Ravensthorpe, Dewsbury Moor and Heckmondwike and is one of only 60 Diamond Jubilee Woods in the country.

Get there from Ravensthorpe, Dewsbury by following the signs to the recently refurbished car park off Park Road.
