12 Days of Christmas Family Trail

Any time during daylight hours
Suitable for young children

Naughty Christmas elves have taken the gifts from the traditional carol 'The Twelve Days of Christmas' and hidden them behind their doors among the trees in the park. Can you help save Christmas and find them all? There are twelve doors to find and behind them twelve pictures of objects from the famous carol.

Suitable for young children and outdoor fun for all the family.

The doors are all located within the arboretum, as shown on the map below. They are low down to the ground at kid level!

This activity will be available in the park during daylight hours. Please leave the doors and 'gifts' as you find them for other visitors to enjoy.

Free parking is available at Milton Keynes Arts Centre (off Parklands, MK14 5DZ) or limited spaces are available at Great Linford Memorial Hall (off Marsh Drive).

We would love to see pictures of your adventures while searching for them (Christmas jumpers and Santa hats encouraged!) so please share with us on Facebook @TheParksTrust.

Covid-19 precautions

Although doors will be left open, we recommend you sanitise your child's hands between each door and when you get home to help prevent the spread of Covid-19.
