Regular garden walks, suitable for all ages, are educational and informative – and are also loads of fun! The woodland walk is also ideal for a family ramble – and dogs are welcome too.
Children of all ages will love the topiary garden, featuring a giant owl and a slowly growing pussycat – as well as the millennium bug. Close by is the magical glade featuring Charles d’Orville Pilkington Jackson’s beautiful sculpture of a water sprite, ‘Foam’.
During the summer months, families can wander through Greenbank House every Sunday and take time out to leaf through some definitive horticultural texts in the comfort of the Allason family library.
There’s also a regular series of family events on at the gardens throughout the year. These range from barbecues through schools competitions and seasonal events such as the Cadbury Easter egg trails and special commemorative events.
