Craigmillar is to host a day full of family fun this weekend with an array of free activities for families to enjoy, including a petting zoo, face painting, hula hooping and free ice cream.
The event is part of a series of community events being held by independent charity, Edinburgh & Lothians Greenspace Trust, which aims to boost community wellbeing and re-connect people with their local green spaces.
The festival is being held at Craigmillar Castle Park on Old Dalkeith Road this Sunday from 1pm to 4pm and follows numerous successful events at the Park. Previous events have included tree planting and educational woodland walks, and throughout September events on offer include a Bat Walk, Mini Zoo and woodland walk to mark the transition to autumn.
A dedicated Woodland Engagement Officer has worked to develop the activity programme in a newly-created role which has been financially supported by The EDI Group and Forestry Commission Scotland. The role was created to encourage the local community to foster a greater understanding of nature and its value, providing opportunities for them to get involved with looking after the Park which is owned and managed by the City of Edinburgh Council.
While we take every opportunity to ensure the details for Family Forest Festival are accurate, we always advise that you contact the event organiser before setting out for the event to avoid disapointment.
