Keep the kids entertained this Easter with our fantastic family-fun event, Spring Trail.

Following the success of our Spooky Welly Walk and Santa Sing Along, we’re excited to bring you another family fun-filled event, Spring Trail. With the days starting to get longer, and weather warmer, we’re welcoming families from across Merseyside and the Wirral to come down to Otterspool promenade for a day of fun.

Spring Trail is a combination of physical and mental activities aimed at children 8 and under.

Start by collecting your Explorer Passport before tackling our Rabbit Run obstacle course, climbing over hay bales, crawling under the cargo net, and stepping through the tyres. It’s then time to get those brains working as they answer questions and collect stickers along the Toadstool Trail. Their adventure will end at the Busy Bee Discovery crafts and mask making, before relaxing in our wonderful storytelling tent. There will also be some optional paid activities such as tattoos, mucky dip and kite-making workshops!

Spring Trail will take place at Otterspool Park and Promenade on Saturday 18th April. There are three time slots available – 11am, 12pm and 1pm. We highly advise you book your tickets in advance to guarantee your preferred time slot as only a limited number of tickets will be available on the day. Both our Spooky Welly Walk and Santa Sing Along SOLD OUT last year, so we recommend booking early to avoid disappointment. Early bird bookers will also get a 20% discount.

As well as enjoying a fun-filled day, your little explorer has the chance to raise money to support people living with lung cancer, people like Phoebe.

Phoebe was just 31 when she was diagnosed with lung cancer. She had two young children and she was terrified she wasn’t going to get to see them grow up. Fortunately, Phoebe was able to have life-saving surgery and, four years on, she’s enjoying life with her husband and children.

Your fundraising efforts for Spring Trail will help us raise vital funds to save and support people like Phoebe.

Click here to access our Spring Trail fundraising page, making it both fun and easy to raise even more money to help patients and their families.

The little chicks who raise £50 or more will receive the VIP treatment on the day and will get 50% off a family ticket to Otterspool Adventure as well as a slushie for the kids and a free tea or coffee for adults!
