Jungle Parc has opened a children’s facility in Lydiard Park, the first stage of a development which allows people to discover the park from on high.
The Adventurer course, aimed at children aged three and over, offers a high wire tree-top adventure in the woodlands next to the children’s play area. The course incorporates 50 different activities including rope bridges, zip lines and cargo nets so children can experience the thrill of swinging, gliding and climbing through the trees and trekking through the woodlands at a tree top level, all in a very safe and well-instructed environment.
Cllr Garry Perkins, the Swindon Borough Council Cabinet Member responsible for Lydiard Park, said: “It’s fantastic that this new visitor attraction is opening this weekend, just in time for Jubilee Bank Holiday weekend and the school half-term holidays.
“Swindon Borough Council is pleased to welcome Jungle Parc, one of the market leaders in aerial adventure attractions, to this site to provide a unique and exciting adventure course to complement the range of activities already offered at this beautiful, historic park.”
Jungle Parc have two centres in the UK in Liverpool and Northampton and are also in France and Spain.
Maria Reynolds, Director of Jungle Parc said: “Jungle Parc is a family business and creates bespoke courses specially for each individual country park. No courses are the same, making each site completely different and very exciting.
“The Adventurer Course offers young people a challenging, fun and safe outdoor experience – they can visit as part of a family group and special packages will also be offered to schools and youth groups. Our new centre in Lydiard Park will be expanded in the autumn with the opening of an X-plorer course creating a complete family attraction.”
Full information on opening times, prices and on-line booking is available on their website www.jungleparc.co.uk or by calling 0844 879 4378.
