Come and visit Howe Park Wood this Summer Holiday for our guided family-friendly pond dipping sessions to discover what amazing minibeasts are lurking beneath the water. We will provide the necessary equipment and teach you all about healthy pond life and the fascinating creatures you will find.

Sessions will run on Tue 6th and Thurs 8th August, every half hour with our first session starting at 9:30 and our last session starting at 12:00. One family ticket covers up to 5 guests.

Our Education Centre will also be open to the public from 9:30-12:30 and is free to visit. We will have artefacts on display such as nests, skulls and feathers that are found across our different parks, nature-themed challenges, and self-guided trails.

Howe Park Wood is one of the city’s jewels, a tranquil oasis, humming with wildlife and colour. As well as being home to a wide variety of wildlife, Howe Park Wood boasts more than 200 plant species, some so rare that English Nature has designated it a Site of Special Scientific Interest for its wildlife value.

Please note, this activity is subject to there being sufficient water in the pond! We will refund if we have to cancel the session for this reason.
