Most attractions boast a, ‘great day out for all the family,’ and in the case of Springfield Fun Park, this really is true.
In June 2015 a family bought the somewhat run down Springfield Pony Centre and have spent the last year or so tirelessly transforming it into the most amazing place. What this park has in abundance is space - and they have filled the gardens, lakes, woodlands and 10,000 square foot barn with the most fantastic play equipment you could possibly want.
A morning could easily be spent inside in the vast indoor play area, but - weather permitting - the ‘all ages’ fun starts outside. I would recommend a trip on the land train first, to get your bearings, but be sure to pick up a leaflet timetabling the bottle feeding of the lambs, as this is not to be missed.
Outside there is so much going on I am tempted to just write a list. For £9 entry fee (under 3’s are free) you can go down the new zip line, play on the pirate ship or wooden castle, feed the goats or carp or ducks, row around the lake, go on the pedal go-karts, stroke an alpaca or a rabbit or a guinea pig or a pony; pan for tin, slide down the astra mat slide, ride on the land train, walk around the ancient woodland or just sit at any one of the picnic tables and enjoy watching your family have a great deal of old fashioned family fun together. For an extra £2 your child can ride on one of the ponies.
This is what holidays are made of. Grumpy teenagers, bored dad’s and whining toddlers all disappear today – for this place really is a great day out for all the family.
