summer holiday activities

Get outdoors


Family cycle route

Take a breath of fresh air

As weather gets warmer and nights get lighter, there's no better way to explore Lee Valley Regional Park with our walking and cycling routes. We recommend Artworks Route 3, starting in Fishers Green through River Lee Country Park to Seventy Acres Lake. On your journey, spot the various sculpture and natural play pieces and see if you can name which ones they are!

There's a lot more routes to discover

The kids can run wild with their friends at Wild Kingdom at Three Mills Green. With hammocks, steeping logs and rope canopy. it's the perfect urban twist.
