Great fun was had by all when we visited the Crocky Trail today.
It's like a giant outdoor play area, for kids of all ages (and I mean the adults too)!!
It's one mile long, with loads of activities along the way. There's swings, mazes, slides, tunnels, not to mention the different bridges across the stream. It's ideal as a family day; and is welcoming to prams/buggies, as there are always alternative ways to get around the more challenging obstacles.
Whilst it's always nice to enjoy the sun, this place lends itself to mud as well; I suggest you take a change of clothes (at the very least, a towel) so the kids can experience everything the place has to offer.
You can reach the Crocky Trail, down the M53 (not far from Chester) and whilst it is open daily through the main summer season, the hours change during winter.
Find out more at their website; where you can also see video of some of the activities.
