Children are asked to follow a trail around a small area of the park in order to find a number of wonderfully painted animals, which in turn leads them to the mysterious blue Easter Bunny. Once completed, the questionnaires are returned to the Trust volunteers at the Visitor Centre in order that a chocolate Easter egg can be claimed. Children can also then enter the colouring competition which the Trust also includes as part of this event.
Cost: Small donation of £3 per child, which is payable on the day.
