It is some years since we were last at this attraction and a lot of work has been done since them to increase its appeal to visitors of all ages. Considering how much rain we have had recently the ground was "Firm" rather than especially muddy! The Arboretum itself covers more than 100 acres and is well laid-out with woodland glades, surprise vistas, stately avenues and a lakeside walk (look out for the yellow notice "Danger - Crocodiles - No Swimming!". There is a children's Adventure/Climbing area where excess energy can be worked off, but for those who prefer to pause to admire the different views there are plenty of seats located throughout.
The Birds of Prey Section and scheduled 1.30pm Flying Display was popular with both young and old, whilst the Wildlife Park had a group of playful young meerkats to entertain us. We hadn't time to visit the walk-through wallaby paddock before it was time to be making our way back (via the tearoom, shop and plant sales area!) to our car. Allow plenty of time if you want to see everything. Spring bulbs and blossom are about to make a superb show.
