17 March: Colin Glen Trust Family Fun Day

Event volunteers required :)

So what’s on this St Patrick’s Family Fun Day 2017 at Colin Glen Forest Park:

As the home of Ireland’s only official Gruffalo Trail, you will enjoy walking through the park and meeting all of the characters from the famous children’s book! This event will be an opportunity for families to gather in our beautiful park on the outskirts of Belfast and enjoy a range of activities, including the ever popular Gruffalo Trail and the Colin Glen Fairy village.

The event will also mark the launch of the Spring Summer season for the park and people who come along to the St. Patrick’s Day event will be able to have a go at a range of outdoor activities such as the climbing wall, zip line, high and low ropes course, team games, laser tag and archery.

Of course being St. Patrick’s Day the park will be filled with music, entertainers and the children will be able to get into the atmosphere with face painters and bouncy castles. We are also aiming to host a craft village so as you can take a break from the activities and browse through some of the stalls.

We are expecting a large crowd for this exciting day and have teamed up with Translink who will be providing a Park & Ride service from their Black’s Road Park and Ride site. The shuttle service will operate from 10:45am to 4:30pm. There will be no parking available on site.
