A buzzing start to Spring

The Easter holidays mark the beginning of another busy Spring and Summer season here at Lepe

Apr 10 2019

Our Pollinator trail has got off to a buzzing start, and with pollinator friendly prizes you too can plant up a pocket of your garden to help bees and butterflies thrive.

Visit the Park’s reception in The Lookout every day during the school holidays between 10am and 3pm to grab a trail and prize of your own.

We also have outdoor art, bushcraft and seashore exploration all to come. Please check our website for events and more information.

Lepe into History

We are also excited to share with you an additional event that we will be holding at Lepe this year.

Our Lepe into History Festival will be held on 1 and 2 June and will be an event to celebrate all of Lepe’s heritage, in particular the 75th anniversary of D-Day.

Piece of Pluto

After the Second World War, bits of PLUTO – the Pipe Line Under the Ocean, a 770-mile connection which supplied the army with 172 million gallons of fuel via flexible welded steel floated out on huge drums – surfaced at Lepe. Pictured is a piece of PLUTO.

The festival will showcase the varied history of Lepe from its Smuggling Days to its top secret activity in the preparation for D-Day for visitors of all ages to enjoy. There will be children's activities, guided walks, exhibitions, displays, live music and more.

So, save the date and plan for a weekend of discovery at Lepe.
