Let the fresh air and stunning surroundings of Lepe Country Park invigorate you this autumn. Whether you’re after a low-cost activity for little ones to enjoy, a view of the sea as you sip a cosy cup of coffee or a mindful moment in the outdoors, we’ve got something for you.

Autumn adventures

Make the most of this striking season and pay a visit to the park during its quieter times. Midweek adventures offer plenty of opportunities to explore away from the busier weekend crowds. Explore our tranquil sensory cottage garden and enjoy using different senses to listen to birdsong, watch insects, and smell the autumnal blooms. The garden has been designed primarily for disabled people, schools and community organisations and offers a soothing space for all.

Outdoor play

Outdoor play is a great way to get kids active, save on spending and enjoy a low-cost family day out at our country park. So, let your little ones loose on the adventure playground, fly kites on the cliff top, and explore the wild corners of the park. You can even take part in our seaside scavenger hunt or explore our seasonal events and activities.
