If visiting South Lake Leisure Centre, have double the fun with a swim and visit to the South Lake Soft Play.

7.  Winter Park Life

If you are planning a family visit to one of the many local parks and open spaces, don’t forget to download the Winter Scavenger Hunt before you go and bring the whole family closer to nature this winter.  The bare trees not only open up views which can be obscured by summer foliage, but also allow good opportunities for some half term bird spotting!
