  1. We love to go on a bike ride, and see all of the wonderful scenery and different animals, trees and wildlife, the animal who gets hit with a snowball is The babboon

  2. Northla fields Park
    on the A40 just by the Target roundabout, It has 3 impressive hills , s play areas. A cafe which serves a decent coffee and a good selection of childrens meals. parking is free.
    this park is well maintained and landscaped.

  3. Bewilderwood in Norfolk is a big outdoor adventure play area. It has something for little children and big children.

  4. Sutton Park, West Midlands…8 miles of glorious park, forests, playparks, bike rides, lakes, walks and cafes and picnic areas….brilliant for all ages..

  5. The Look Out, Bracknell Discovery Centre has a lovely enclosed playground and woodland in which you can go for a walk. You can hire bicycles as well. I think one of the Harry Potter’s was filmed here.

  6. So many choices, but locally I’d go for either Warley Woods or the Clent Hills. Both have loads of places to hide away or explore.
    Hit by a snowball – babboon.

  7. Coombe Country Park in Coventry – great fun for the kids. There’s acres of beautiful parkland to picnic in or to kick a ball about, a super nature trail, a historic site – and an adventure play land.

  8. Oops – forgot to say,. for a bonus entry into the competition, it is the BABOON that gets hit by the snowball.

    • Highwoods county park, it has lots there, its perfect for picnics, bike riding and they have a play area too.

      it is the BABOON that gets hit by the snowball.

  13. Richmond park, great and free day out, you can ride the bike or walk, watch deers.

  14. We live in Norfolk, have been to Bewilderwood a few times, great adventure day out. Great adventure park (slides, treehouses that sort of thing) all set in woodland. Good for children of all ages.

  15. Outdoor near our home is a place called Drumlandrig Castle which has a great outdoor play area swinging ropes climbing aeriel slides-the kids love it-great little tea room and good walks round the castle too.

  18. Hi I think Holmbush farm near Horsham west Sussex is fantastic it’s great value for money they have lots of animals including a very hygienic area where kids can hold and stroke animals such as a hare and ferrets and chicks and more you can have a tractor ride for 80 pence which takes you all up the fields and around the farm there is a cafe and picnic area and they cater for childrens parties my kids love the huge play area which you will have to see to believe it had 2 air plies and huge play equipment of towers and tunnels swings and more and s indoor play area of tractors and go karts it’s well worth going there x

  19. Battersea park for sure! There is a zoo and 2 parks, one for children ages 5 and under and one for kids 5-16 which is an ‘adventure’ park and it is even supervised!

  20. Hobbledown is a new adventure park in Epsom, Surrey. It’s very different to anywhere I’ve been before. As well as housing a farm there’s an aerial assault course that’s not to be missed. It’s like something out of Total Wipe out. You can easily spend the whole day there and not be bored. It makes me wish I was a kid again

  21. Hey there I am so happy I found your blog page, I really
    found you by error, while I was searching on Askjeeve for something else, Regardless I
    am here now and would just like to say many thanks for a
    incredible post and a all round thrilling blog (I also love the theme/design), I
    don’t have time to go through it all at the moment but I have saved it and also added in
    your RSS feeds, so when I have time I will be back to read much more, Please do keep up the great work.

  22. My programmer is trying to convince me to move to .
    net from PHP. I have always disliked the idea because of the costs.
    But he’s tryiong none the less. I’ve been using WordPress on numerous websites for
    about a year and am concerned about switching to another platform.

    I have heard good things about blogengine.
    net. Is there a way I can import all my wordpress posts into it?
    Any kind of help would be really appreciated!

  23. folding patio doors often come apart so you can see some comparisons before making more good things for your children.
    To start with, confirm the size of your room and your design idea.

    It means to attract people awareness.
