Lark in the Park is one of Rushcliffe Borough Council's biggest family play day events. It's their 29th annual celebration of National Play Day, this year with a Go Wild theme. It's a free day of family fun, held in Bridgford Park, West Bridgford.

Come along and discover fun ways to explore, play, and get creative in the great outdoors. Get muddy, and get up close to nature. There's a whole host of child friendly attractions such as arts and craft workshops, have-a-go sports activities, walkabout entertainers, classes and stage shows. Admission is free, but there's a charge for fairground rides and inflatables.

At Streetwise Environmental, we think we've come up with a cunning plan to attract a whole new generation of horticulturalists! Come and visit our stand to find out all about growing plants. Talk to our experts, and help them plant up seedlings which will be used around the Borough. You will get to take away a fantastic goody bag that includes your own potted seedling, instructions on how to look after it at home, and how to plant it in your own garden. You will also get a free calendar that reminds you what you should be doing in your garden every month.

The fun starts at 10am on Wednesday 2nd August, and goes on until 4pm. Parking is available on Bridge Field, Bridgford Road, and costs £3 for the day.

Regular bus services operate from the city centre and across Rushcliffe to West Bridgford. For more information about public transport visit

We look forward to seeing you there - bring your wellies and don't wear your best clothes - you might get messy! Don't forget to come and see us at the Streetwise Environmental stand.
