Daily Children's activities
The Cowden Challenge
Can you find all the characters hidden in the garden?
Hidden amongst the foliage in The Japanese Garden and adjoining Christie Walk there are small plaques, each with a Japanese character and letter. Using the sheet collected at the Ticket Desk match the characters and solve the puzzle, return the completed sheet to our ticket staff to get a prize!
The Stewart Woodland Trail
In the Stewart Woodland, found at the bottom of the carpark there is a children's advernture trail.
Join our woodland characters; Mouse, Fox, Badger, Weasel, Hedgehog and
Squirrel each with their own activity scattered throughout the wooded area.
Build Otter a new river boat, leave Owl a wish on his magical wishing tree
and toss pinecones into Woodpecker's target tree.
The Stewart Woodland Village
Over the summer our loyal volunteers have created something special from the devastation left by storm Arwen in November 2021.
After the loss of so many trees in our woodland it has been given a new lease of life.
The woodland animals have set up their homes in the recently cleared slope of the woodland. Can you see any of them looking out of their windows?
Let your imagination run wild in The Stewart Woodland. Following the path down towards Ella's walk and you will stumble upon the latest addition to the children's trail.
