Bolton Council is holding a Springwatch event in Queens Park on Saturday 28 May from 12pm to 4pm.

The event will include a variety of activities for all ages. Bird lovers can get up close and personal with birds of prey, whilst adventure lovers can try their hand at circus skills or test their head for heights on the climbing wall.

There will also be entertainment from The Wild Man of the Woods, a show which explores our changing relationship with nature and the landscape through songs, stories and humour - ancient and modern.

Other activities include a children's funfair, wild flower planting with the park’s rangers, face painting, henna painting and ‘Soca’ skills training.

The event will also showcase all the regeneration activity going on in the park. Work has already completed on the the restoration of
Dobson Bridge and the dredging and refilling of the lakes. Work is also well under way on the restoration of Park Road lodge and building the
new community pavilion. A brand new play area has also recently opened, which is already popular with local children.

Councillor Elaine Sherrington, Executive Member for Cleaner, Greener, Safer said: “Queens Park is in the midst of an exciting programme of regeneration, which already includes cleaner lakes and a new play area. We hope that this event encourages as many people as possible to come down and see what we are doing in the park, as well as having a fun day with their families in the park.”
