Outdoor fun with the animals

We offer so much more than just our indoor Play Barn, so bring your outdoor clothes and wellington boots, enjoy our outdoor play areas and get up and close to the animals around the park too!

 

 

During busier times we will be running a coloured wristband system for the Play Barn, ensuring that each guest receives at least one hour of indoor play between 11am & 3pm!

All 'yearly pass holders' may have full access at all times, please ensure you collect your wrist bands from the admission's desk on entry.

Families & friends can truly adventure together:

  • Stroll along the riverside on our Riverside Experience (with a junior assault course). (Open throughout the summer)
  • Have fun boating on our lake. (Open throughout the summer)
  • Explore many other exciting activities in the extensive grounds.  
  • Or simply enjoy a leisurely lunch in one of our cafés, or a picnic in the stunning grounds.

Daily activities not to be missed:

We have a number of activities that take place daily here at the park during our Animal Magic afternoons.  

During the Summer months, Ascot come to Avon Valley (12.30 daily) in the form of our legendary pig racing.  Our pigs can't fly but they sure can run fast!  This really is a 'must see' event during your visit - both children and adults love to spectate.
