Award winning park hosts family open day

Wyre estuary country park Published Monday, 24 July 2017

Wyre Estuary Country Park in Thornton is hosting an open day on Sunday 30 July from 11am until 4pm.

Families are invited to explore the park and try a number of activities to suit all ages. There will be the chance to see the nectar garden and find out about bees and beekeeping, have a go at Nordic walking and get involved with Stanah Squirrels Wildlife Watch Group.

Keep Britain Tidy has just awarded the park its thirteenth Green Flag Award for having the highest possible environmental standards, being beautifully maintained and offering excellent visitor facilities.

Alison Boden, Coast and Countryside Manager at Wyre Council, said: "Our open day is a fun family day out and a great way to find out what you can do during the summer in Wyre's parks, coast and countryside."

The event will be attended by Homeless Hounds and their four-legged friends and there will be a variety of stalls and wildlife displays. Visitors can take part in the Xplorer orienteering trail, see flyball demonstrations and find out how to get involved in caring for the park by becoming a volunteer.

Situated on the banks of the Wyre Estuary, the park boasts riverside walks and rides and is home to a multitude of wildlife and breath-taking views. Natural play areas keep toddlers and older children occupied and Wyreside Cafe serves well earned refreshments to visitors.

The event takes place at Wyre Estuary Country Park, River Road, Stanah, Thornton Cleveleys, FY5 5LR on Sunday 30 July, 11am - 4pm. Entry is free however small charges apply to some activities.
