Close to the Visitor Centre car parks are the adventure play area and the sculpture trail.
The play area has more than 30 pieces of equipment, including slides, swings, a rope bridge, a "wobble board" and climbing wall. The sculpture trail is a walk through the Arboretum passing sculptures, all made by chainsaw carvers from natural tree trunks. At present there are 15 sculptures, but more are added each year.
Both the play area and the sculpture trail are free of charge, as are the Visitor Centre car parks, and are open every day of the year.
