Coronavirus (COVID-19): updates and advice.

Events at Avon Heath Country Park

Due to the COVID-19 pandemic, most of our events are currently on hold. 

Self-led walks, children's trails and orienteering routes are still available for visitors to do during their visit, provided the latest government guidance is followed.

Avon Heath Christmas Treasure Trail

Follow the snowman arrows and find the Christmas clues hidden on the trees around Avon Heath, then return to claim your prize. The Christmas Treasure Trail:

  • is open every day until 4 January 2021 (excluding Christmas Day, Boxing Day and New Year's Day)
  • starts at the Visitor Centre any time between 10am and 3pm
  • costs £3 per prize

You must queue at least 2 metres from others.

Before you start the Christmas Treasure Trail

When you pay we will ask you for a contact name or secret code word to give the Rangers. This secret code word will be something that only your family knows, for example the name of a pet or teddy. This is so the Rangers give out prizes to the right people!

2 Christmas Treasure Trails

There are 2 different Christmas Treasure Trails:

  • the short route: this is suitable for families with buggies and takes about 20 to 30 minutes. You miss some clues, but you can still get a prize
  • the long route: this takes about an hour and can be muddy. We recommend wearing welly boots

What you can do on the Christmas Treasure Trails

This is what you can do when walking the Christmas Treasure Trails:

  •  young children can find or count the snowmen arrows
  • older children can find out what the local wild animals are asking Santa for this year. Record your answers on your phone or a notepad
  • Wildlife Champion Optional Extra: think about what you can do to help wildlife in a garden near you. Then return to the Visitor Centre front window to see the Rangers and collect your prize
