Event description
The Friends of Rising Sun Country Park invite you to join our Community Celebration Walk.

About this Event

The walk will celebrate the opening of the new park extension, near the Dukes Pond, so the community can get involved in seeing the new areas of the park at a friendly, social event for all the family. Dogs are welcome too, on leads please.

On the day, you can choose to join either a 2k walk, for a longer 5k walk. Both routes are accessible for buggies and wheelchairs.

The event will include a walk which will take in the Dukes Pond, the new Meadow Ponds, amphitheatre, woodland and views across the Swallow Pond.

There will be free facepainting for all children (included with your ticket) and a children's quiz to enjoy as you go around the 2k route. All children handing in a quiz at the end of the walk will receive some treasure PLUS there will be three star prizes drawn from the quiz, to be notified by the Friends of Rising Sun Country Park

1st prize A family ticket (for 2 adults, 2 children) to the Santa's Grotto at Rising Sun Countryside Centre.

2nd prize A £20 voucher for the Rising Sun Countryside Centre Cafe.

3rd Prize A box of celebrations.

Please arrive by 10.45am as we will head out into the wider park at 11am prompt. Please ensure you wear clothing for the weather, it may be muddy underfoot so wear appropriate shoes and waterproofs/warm clothing if required.

This Community Celebration Walk will enable the local community to enjoy a guided walk in the park, as well as to support the Friends of the Rising Sun Country Park projects which include regenerating the wildlife pond in the Centre Grounds, planting a bluebell wood in the Plantation Woodland (near the owls eyes) and proposals for a covered area on the Cafe Terrace.

We hope you will come along to show your support and to help us to work to been the park beautiful for everyone.

Please note the Countryside Centre supports Reuse Refill so you can bring a water bottle to refill if you would like to. This is to reduce the use of single use plastic to protect the environment.

Please share this event with others you think would be interested!
