From following a trail to making decorations, families can have lots of fun in Beacon Park this Easter.

Kicking off the fun holiday programme, families can follow an Easter trail round Beacon Park to solve clues and claim a small prize. The trails cost £1 each and are available from Beacon Park’s Ranger Station every day until 23 April from 9am to 4pm.

Children can also take part in an Xplorer orienteering challenge on Wednesday 12 April between 11am and 2pm. It costs 50p for a trail that will lead children to the markers and once they’ve completed the challenge they will receive a certificate, sticker and wristband (while stocks last).

The city park is also holding an Easter Decoration Day in the Discovery Hub on Friday 14 April between 11am and 3pm. The drop-in workshop includes making Easter decorations by either sticking, cutting or sewing. It costs £1 for each decoration.

Councillor Andy Smith, Lichfield District Council’s Cabinet Member for Leisure & Parks, said: “Beacon Park is a vibrant and much loved green space in the heart of the city. It’s always great to visit with the family as there is so much to do, from the play area and crazy golf course to playing tennis and enjoying a stomp through the woodland.

“This Easter we’re also offering a charming Easter trail, an orienteering challenge and the chance to make Easter decorations. We hope plenty of people will get involved and enjoy the programme of cracking activities.”
