Four-legged friends are lapping up new activity course

Activity course

We’ve been getting some great feedback from the owners of some very pleased pooches whose pets have enjoyed our new dog activity course at Queen Elizabeth Country Park.

Our four-legged friends have been wagging their tails at the new outdoor course, which opened earlier this month. It’s part of the new and improved facilities planned as part of a £2 million investment we are making at the park, near Petersfield.

The park also has a new assault course and outdoor adventure play equipment, thanks to funding from the Armed Forces Covenant. A new community space with pizza oven are also planned. Other improvements we are making include a bigger restaurant at the existing visitor centre.

The first to get involved, by giving the assault course a test run, were the Combined Cadet Force from Seaford College, West Sussex. Twenty cadets climbed, jumped and swung their way around. Take a look at this Forces TV video report from the day.

The new play area and community space is inspired by the project’s military connections; with local ancient forts and wooden dens to be built. We’re looking forward to its first real test during the next half term week.
