Evenley Wood Gardens Easter Spring Garden Trail (until 14th April)

Evenley Wood Gardens Easter Spring Garden Trail (until 14th April)

Date of Adventure: 18 Mar, 2024

Oh my! What an Easter treat! Evenley Wood Gardens REALLY knows how to put on a trail – they go all out!

A trail with a bit if a difference, and that difference being that it’s everywhere: up high, down low, in rivers, across bridges, in a GIANT watering can, shovel and spade, and finally in the bottom of an Easter egg which was wolfed down with a little help from Mum. So very unique. But do you know the most extraordinary bit? The bluebells! They are out and so so blue! I knew they were set to flower early this year but I wasn’t expecting them out this early. Absolutely stunning.

As well as the trail and the 60 acre private woodland to explore, there is also the playground of dreams. And my boys help build it! Yep, when Woodland Tribe, a not-for-profit CIC which supports and promotes the adventure playground movement, came to visit we made sure we had tickets because hammers, saws and co-production is a whole big adventure we want to be part of!

Check out our pics because the proof is in the fun!
