A great day out for all the family. Loads to see and get involved with. My 5 year old loved the ‘toilets and sinks in the trees’ and the mosaic ‘octopus’. Hours of fun and it’s FREE!!

Met with friends who have young children. We all enjoyed the fun of walking around the grounds discovering amazing sculptures. We took a picnic as food here is expensive. Fresh air, exercise and art what more could you wish for.
