New Forest Wildlife Park Announces Easter Adventures with Otter Cubs and Pebble Hunts

March 27, 2024

This Easter, the New Forest Wildlife Park invites families to Step into Spring, an adventure that combines the joy of wildlife with the spirit of spring. From March 29th to April 14th, the park will offer a range of unique Easter activities that celebrate the season and the 260 animals who thrive at the wildlife park.  

The highlight of the season is the opportunity for visitors to catch a glimpse of the playful giant otter cubs as they interact with their big sister and parents, offering a rare insight into the family dynamics of these endangered animals. Instead of the traditional Easter egg hunt, the park presents the Easter Pebble Trail, where visitors can find hidden pebbles throughout the park and learn fun facts about the giant river otters. Successfully completing the trail rewards explorers with a special prize.

Adding to the excitement, the Golden Pebble Hunt gives visitors the chance to win one of 14 return family visits or a Bronze Keeper Experience. Hidden within the park is a golden pebble; find it, scan the QR code, and enter a draw for these fantastic prizes.

Easter at New Forest Wildlife Park also means Craft Weekends, where creativity blossoms. On select weekends, the park will host workshops for making badges, animal masks, and leaf printing, providing a perfect outlet for artistic expression alongside wildlife discovery.

Event Details:

  • Easter Pebble Trail: March 29th – April 14th, £1.50
