Environmental education

Come and get up close to your environment with our country parks. Come for a whole day or half a day, the choice is yours. We would love to see you and your class this year in our beautiful country parks.

Country Parks – Learning Outside The Classroom

Our main parks for school visits are:

  • Hartshill Hayes CountryPark;
  • Kingsbury Water Park;
  • Ryton Pools Country Park;
  • Pooley Country Park.

Visit us and you will find:

  • Many different habitats giving children the opportunity to explore whilst learning about the environment they live in and how they influence it;
  • Activities that cater from Foundation Stage up to KS3;
  • Education centres at Kingsbury, Ryton and Pooley;
  • All weather rangers ready with a smile!

How to Book a Visit:


We have lots of activities suitable for all seasons. If you want to book a programme you have done previously, let us know.
