Irchester Country Park
Irchester Country Park in Northamptonshire was formerly an ironstone quarry. There's a network of circular, way-marked and hard-surfaced long and short woodland trails.
It has a new children's play area with sand play equipment, a digger, xylophone, balancing beams and seesaws.
There are wooden play trains plus climbing wall and plenty of challenging climbing frames. A well laid out and large site.
A new two level activity rope course opened recently. For an extra charge, adults and children (minimum height 1.5m) can climb, balance, zip and crawl through the trees.
Jungle Parc costs £10 for the children's course, £15 for the explorer course. Instructors give a safety briefing first and there is a training course for children to ensure they have learned the basics. It is possible to book on the day.
Railway & Museum
There's also a Narrow Gauge Railway museum housing a collection of steam and diesel trains.
