It’s great outdoors, naturally healthy- you cannot go wrong with a beautiful park!

It’s always a gamble when you trust organisers and advertise an event but lessons are learned.

You just can’t go wrong with a park, and this one has a lot going for it.
Landlife National Wildflower Centre, in Court Hey Park close to Broadgreen Hospital, has had events all summer connecting people with nature and has itself become a ‘healthy hub’ for all ages to get more active in parks and green spaces.

Annick Laroque, the Great Outdoors Project Officer and her team, have put together a substantial low-cost series of outdoor well-being activities for all ages.

These activities are free and involve, archery, guided nature walks, Nordic Walking, bush-craft, a family forest school, herbal medicine, cycling, and the edible garden expert. Workshops are led by trained experts in their field and introduce you to the ways of wellbeing.

For children, they have the mini-beasts and crafts workshops, seeds under the microscope, wellies trail, go wild about plants and many more educational and fun activites.

For more details and up to date information on the Great Outdoors Community Programme, contact or just visit the National Wildlife Centre and display areas, opening hours are 10am-5pm, 7 days a week, March to September.

The Cornflower Café stocks a delicious array of cakes and healthy light meals with a fantastic area for meeting, conferences, special celebrations and even children’s parties, having a safe kids adventure play area and a relaxing arena for adults to absorb the natural environment around them.

Well worth a visit if you have never been before.

    The National Wildflower Centre makes a great place to visit but is also really active in promoting the use of wildflowers in urban regeneration, roadside verges, creating new meadows, etc.
