Streamvale Open Farm
Chicks at the open farm

There will be a guided tour and talk to the kids all about making their ice cream. There are also loads of farm activities (although a few of them do cost extra).

Price will be £5 per child and this will include a mid morning break and an ice cream tasting session. Carers will get in for free and under 3's do as well.

Adult price is £5 as well (down from 6.50) and for every 4 children one adult will get in free - so if paying adults split the cost it will get cheaper depending on the total number.

Booking essential.

Carnfunnock September Camping Trip

Sun, 20/09/2015 (All day) - Wed, 23/09/2015 (All day)
Carnfunnock Country Park
The Northern Ireland Maze

A few families have booked 2-3 nights camping in Carnfunnock Country Park and would love some company! They have lots of resources available and I hope to be able to explore the maze, play in the park, have a bug hunt, hug a few trees and get mucky.

"2 nights camping works out 27.50£ as its off peak time, obviously if you fancy coming along book for however many nights you want my aim would be we can hook up closer to the time and pitch nearby / next to each other if it suits.

The Family fun zone will be open on the Sunday and they have Treasure hunts, Orienteering, Maze, amd the Park open until dark all other days"
