The Big Draw
The Big Draw competition
Enter before Thursday 31 December.
We're taking part in The Big Draw and asking all budding young artists out there to design us a flag with a climate change theme.
Winning flags will be chosen and displayed in our parks next year. Email firstname.lastname@example.org for details of how to apply.
Half term activities
Skeleton Key Trail
Saturday 24 October - Sunday 1 November
What kind of key do you need at Halloween? A skeleton key of course. Our skeleton at Wharton Park has lost his keys, can you help him find them? Use the map to help you find the spooky keys, record what you see and solve the puzzle.
Trail sheets can then be collected from our café between 11am and 3pm during half term from Saturday 24 October to Sunday 1 November.
Creepy Craft Pack
Pre-bookable craft packs with a range of Halloween projects to make at home. Wharton Park loves Halloween, but as we are sadly unable to bring you our popular creepy craft drop-in art and craft session this year, we are offering families the opportunity to collect your own creepy craft pack from the park to take home and enjoy.
Pre booking is required with limited stock available. Pack contents may vary.
Price: £3 per pack
Following your online purchase, you can collect your craft pack from Wharton Park Cafe during half term from Monday 26 October to Friday 30 October between 11am and 3pm. Please take proof of purchase with you to show the café staff on duty. This can be shown on your phone or a printed receipt.
Please note that the basics required for each craft project will be included in the pack. In order to complete these projects at home you may require items such as sticky tape, glue, scissors, paint, coloured pens, pencils or crayons as these will not be supplied in the pack.
