This Easter, The Forest Train will take passengers on a new adventure into Avondale Forest Park. The train will travel deep through the magical forest, where passengers will disembark to begin a fun & fact-finding nature trail.
- Each child will be given a pencil and a nature trail booklet filled with interesting things to look out for and some fun facts about the forest in spring time.
- Along the way, they will meet Ned, our resident Woodsman chopping logs outside his house. Ned is a wonderful story teller & under the branches of the mighty oak tree he will entertain everyone with his magical story about the oak tree and the surrounding forest.
- Before getting back on the train there will be time for a wooden Easter egg hunt in the grass of the forest meadow.
- Armed with some new information and a wooden egg to decorate, it’s back on the train to the Old Barn where there will be some serious egg decorating to do. There will lots of different egg design ideas…anything from a mini minion egg to a beautiful gold glitter one.
Adults can grab a coffee while the kids are getting creative or they can get stuck in themselves.
There will be a Spring time Market in The Old Barn with stalls selling coffee, cakes and crepes, crafts, balloons, jewelry, popcorn, ice cream, Wild Wicklow Foods and much much more .
The Old Barn will be a hive of activity and we look forward to soaking in the atmosphere with you this Easter Weekend.
*Children should wear old clothes, appropriate footwear and dress accordingly for the weather. The event is both indoor and outdoor.
