Westbury Wildlife Park in Bristol is set to open its doors in May, following nearly thirty years of closure and neglect.
Volunteers have been working hard for many months to restore the site to its former condition as a local wildlife beauty spot.
The restored wildlife park will be open to the public as a safe space to enjoy nature, and there will be a café, children’s forest play area, and much to explore!
The project will also give Bristol residents the opportunity to get involved in projects to preserve and protect nature, and will be a centre for environmental education and a place to nurture creativity.
Because there has been such a huge interest in the park, in the efforts to preserve the park’s wildlife, the opening will take place over two weekends and will be ticketed events.
Following this staggered opening, the wildlife park will be free entry with a limited capacity every weekend until October.
Thursday 6th May – Sunday 9th May: Opening Weekend 1
Thursday 13th May – Sunday 16th May: Opening Weekend 2
During the opening weekends there will be competitions and other activities for children to enjoy, plus some wildlife workshops, too. There’ll also be an onsite coffee wagon for refreshments and a barbecue on both Sundays.
If you would like to book tickets for either of the opening weekend please do so here: https://www.wwpf.uk/open
