Stockeld Park, Wetherby

Roversi’s Week of Fun (see previous post) continues with the place that states “Where Magic is Made and Adventures Begin” – Stockeld Park in Wetherby which is currently hosting its ‘Summer Adventure‘. 

I’ve ‘liked’ the parks page on Facebook for a while but never actually been, then recently Honest Mum blogged about her visit so I thought I’d add it to our itinerary during my husbands week off work. I was surprised when I put it into Google Maps on my iPhone to find that it was only half an hour from our house! It’s so nice to be able to go on days out that aren’t a million miles away from home.

We began with a stroll around The Enchanted Forest which is a pretty area of the park with a long winding path that has various play areas and magical moments along the way.

Loving anything that makes a noise, the Munchkin loved all the musical instruments dotted around the Enchanted Forest and even had a bit of a tantrum when we moved him on from one of them!

I was a little worried that Mini Roversi wouldn’t get a lot out of the day but he loved walking around the forest, looking at the trees mainly, and was able to play in most of the play areas. The only one that was a little old for him was the “Tangle Tree Climb” which he was too little for but the “Tepee Encampment”, “The Maze” and “Woodsands Cove” were perfect…with a little help from me and his Daddy.

Whilst walking around the forest there is a “Ski Track” at the side of the path where you can pay extra to ride an Electric Scooter around the Enchanted Forest. They looked like great fun but obviously we stayed away from them as Mini Me is definitely too young to be zooming around on one of those – given he can’t stand up on his own for longer than a few minutes! There were other activities which we stayed away from due to L being too young, such as the “Retro Rollar Rink”, “Chopper Go Karts” and the “Inflatable Zone” but it’s great that every time we come he’ll be able to experience more and more.

We grabbed some lunch at the Woodland Cafe which was really nice and fairly reasonably priced but, to be honest, there is so many lovely places to sit and eat I’d probably take a nice big picnic next time and sit outside. They have outdoor toys such as big Mega Blocks, Space Hoopers and goal posts so the kids can run off their lunch!

We took L to the Indoor Play Zone by the restaurant where he experienced his first Bouncy Castle and Bouncy Pillow! He loved it I, however, was worried about him being squashed or stood on my the bigger kids!

IMG_3804 IMG_3813We stopped in at their Ice Cream Parlour before we headed home and sample the salted caramel and mango (separate flavours, not together!) ice cream which come from the local ice cream makers. It was rather yummy – I’m a sucker for a bit of ice cream since I had our son. Weird because I wasn’t bothered about it before! As I re-joined Slimming World on Monday, it was a treat! 

All in all, another lovely family day. We’ll definitely be returning to Stockeld Park as I imagine it is beautiful when it’s all lit up at night and completely magical at Chirstmas when Santa visits. Their Summer Adventure is open till the 7th September before the Halloween and Christmas Seasons begin.

  4. I love the musical tree keyboard, how fab! Also that teapot slide looks great fun. It’s brilliant when you find things on your doorstep that you didn’t realise where there and if there is icecream involved too, it’s surely a win! X
