Children are enjoying the new enchanted wood play area at the Curraghs Wildlife Park which opened recently.
The play area – which is for children from toddlers to 12 years and described by a park spokesman as ‘quirky and unique’ – was opened in time to coincide with the school holidays.
A host of special activities were laid on for the grand opening. These included wood carving and a fancy dress competition, as well as face painting, and children were invited to help to carve the last sculpture to be included in the park.
Youngsters were invited to attend the event in fancy dress, as a fairy, wizard or with some other costume which embraced the enchanted theme.
Winners of the fancy dress competition received a family membership of the Wildlife Park. The park near Ballaugh homes nearly 100 species.
