This event is in the past. This page is for information purposes only.

Join us at Monkston Park, in the Ouzel Valley for an afternoon of fun with lots of free games and activities which the whole family can enjoy on Tuesday 25 August. Our parkland play sessions are a great way to entertain the kids during the school holidays and enjoy your local park. Children must be accompanied by an adult at all times.

Booking Essential - please ensure you have booked your free spaces for all adults and children attending. If you can no longer attend a session you have booked, please email us as soon as possible on so that we can offer your space to someone else.

Please note, there will be limited space available across four 20 minute time-slots between 1pm and 3pm. This will help us manage group sizes and allow cleaning of equipment between slots for everyone's safety. Hand sanitiser stations will be available but please bring your own if possible.

Parking is available at the Water Gardens car park off Newport Road, with a short walk through the Ouzel Valley to the event area.

    The Ouzel Valley Park meanders from Caldecotte Lake in the south to Willen Lake in the north. The park has a spacious, open atmosphere with long views. Much of the land is farmed by The Parks Trust rearing our own cattle and sheep, between the livestock you can still see the remnants of an old field system with the ridge and furrow still visible. Incorporating the historic villages of Woolstone and Woughton, the park is bordered on its western side by the Grand Union Canal.

    There is the Ye Olde Swan pub at Woughton on the Green and a further two pubs - the Barge and the Cross Keys – that are located on Newport Road in Woolstone village.
