Wild Discoveries at Wild Place Project from Saturday 16th February to Sunday 3rd March 2019

Posted on: 11 Feb 2019

Half-Term just wouldn't be Half-Term without a spot of exploring, and Bristol's Wild Place Project will give kids the chance to wander and rove (and get a bit muddy) with its Wild Discoveries events from Saturday 16th February to Sunday 3rd March 2019.

With a trusty pair of Wellingtons and some waterproofs, the city's youngsters can amble around the joys of nature marveling at the brilliant Animal Park and woodland.


A series of challenges will be thrown in for good measure as well as letting kids do what they do best - getting into a bit of outdoor mischief and taking advantage of muddy terrain and suitably splashable puddles.


On the Wild Discoveries Trail you can follow the footprints to identify which animals have been playing in the woods, whilst Whose Poo? is the pinnacle of poo-based puzzlers to identify which four animals have left behind their own distinctive movements.

Barefoot Trail has been given a reboot so you can take off your shoes to pop your toes amidst a veritable combo of textures such as bark, soil, mud and pebbles; and Fun Fort is the ultimate outdoor adventure park where kids can slide down the fireman's pole, have a crack at the climbing wall, clamber up the scramble net and run across the scatter bridge.


The perfect opportunity to whisk the whippersnappers away from their iPads and enjoy the beauty of the great outdoors and a lungful or two of good ol' fresh air, more details will be revealed in the not-too-distant future.


Tickets cost £7.92 for adults, £5.28 for children, whilst under 2's get in for free.  You can find out more and reserve your place here.


Wild Place Project is located at Blackhorse Hill, Bristol, BS10 7TP.  Tel. 0117 980 7175
