Looking for something fun to do this winter? Park in the Past in Caergwrle has got you covered! We welcome back the Nature Detectives Family Workshop in November and welcome the arrival of the Festive Wreath Making workshops and our Winter Festive Week! These are all great events to take part in. So grab your coat and hat and come on down to the park for some winter fun!
Every Sunday between 13th and 27th November.
Nature Detectives is designed for families with younger children. The two-hour workshop encourages you and your children to explore the natural world at Park in the Past.
You will enjoy a gentle walk around the Park, stopping to investigate plants and animals and discover some fascinating facts.
The session also includes an art activity and ends with cooking marshmallows around a campfire (weather depending) or a hot chocolate in the cafe.
These sessions run every Sunday from November 11 am to 1 pm- and then- 2 pm to 4 pm.

Join us at Park in the Past to create your own Festive Wreath, made from winter foliage sourced from the Park.
Enjoy a mince pie and a festive drink as you make your wreath.
All materials are included but do feel free to bring along any special decorations you might like to add for that personal touch.
You may like to bring your own secateurs, though we will also have some provided on the day.
The sessions are two hours.
