The Curraghs Wildlife Park will trial Friday opening during the winter period from Friday next week (January 10).
The park, including the cafe, will be open on Fridays, 10am to 4pm. Last admissions will be at 2pm.
General manager Kathleen Graham said: ‘In the last year we have had a staggering increase in membership.
‘Many of our members have pre-school children and to add value to their memberships we have decided to trial a Friday opening during the winter season.’
Visitor services manager Tina Jauncey said: ‘We will be delighted if we attract visitors to the park on Fridays, all are welcome. This is more about offering slightly extended opening times in the winter as a service, particularly for our members who have been very supportive.’
Previously the park has been open weekends and school holidays from November to Easter. From April 1 it will open seven days a week.
