Riverside Trail

The Riverside Walk is now closed until Easter 2020.  This area is a flood plain so for the safety of visitors, staff and our animals we close the area between October & Easter.


Discover the stunning wildlife and nature that runs alongside the River Avon and our beautiful 1 & 1/4 mile Riverside Trail .

Highlights of the Riverside Trail include:

Animals galore! See our Red and Fallow Deer, Wallabies, Rhea and Rare Breed Cattle & Sheep.


Nature Garden

Our Boating Lake 

Obstacle course

If you wish to fish we allow fishing on our section of the river!  It is included in general park admission, all you need to bring is your valid fishing licence and tackle!

Please note: For safety reasons, the Riverside Walk is closed in line with the river level. Please do not access this area if the gates are closed.

An excellent, affordable day out, for all the family.

Animals Galore

We have a variety of animals alongside the Riverside Trail. See our Red and Fallow Deer alongside Rhea and Wallabies. You'll also find our rare breed Soay, Jacob, Greyface Dartmoor and Hebridean Sheep and our Highland, Longhorn, Dexter and Gloucester Cattle.
You may even spot some of the wildlife that visits us - the Canadian Geese, ducks, swans, badgers, foxes and more!


During the summer period, our resident Falconer runs a display on weekends and school holidays. Meet the Barn Owl, Kestrel, European Eagle Owl and much more! Flying displays take place on good-weather days.

Obstacle Course

The entire length of the Riverside Trail has all sorts of obstacles to test your stamina and strength. Can you challenge yourself to try every one?

Boating Lake

Take time out of your day to take your family out across our specially-made boating lake.

Nature Garden

Our Nature Garden is a little haven with wild flowers, bee hive and wild pond - we've even got a Bug Hotel!
