A successful summer at Rabbit Ings Country Park

1st September 2017

Hundreds of people have been out and about at Rabbit Ings Country Park this summer, making the most of the open space and all sorts of hands-on activities hosted by Ranger Mick.

During the school holidays there has been a bug hunt, pond dipping, bug hotel building, natural art session and den building.

The most popular was pond dipping, with 130 people coming out to see what lives in the water. In fact, it was so busy that they couldn’t use the new pond-dipping platform and had to use the big lake!

Building dens and bug hotels were also incredibly popular, with dozens of children and adults taking part.

Ranger Mick said: “I’d like to thank everyone who came to one of our events this summer, they’ve been fantastic!

“Please don’t wait until next summer to come back – any time of year is great for a walk around Rabbit Ings and we’ll have more events during the half-term and Christmas holidays.”
