Easter Egg And P-P-P-Up A Penguin Hunt

Easter Egg Hunt - Sunday 5th April

Join us for an egg-cellent Egg Hunt on Easter Sunday, with a twist!

Simply find a penguin card – amongst the chocolate eggs – and exchange for a plush penguin soft toy.

10.30am for children aged 8-11yrs

Tickets cost £2.50 and must be booked in advance as places are limited.

Terms and conditions apply. One penguin per paid child entrant.

With an emphasis on enjoyment and team building, The Ark activity camp will not only increase your child’s confidence, but also their overall fitness, coordination and balance.

Christmas is coming! The Ark’s Magical Christmas Grotto At The Cricket Pavilion, Poole Park

This Christmas is going to be really special at The Ark, Poole Park.

From 27th November to 24th December, we’re transforming Poole Park’s cricket pavilion into a magical winter cabin, complete with Father Christmas and his elves.

Sprinklings of snow, twinkly lights, jingling bells and jolly cheer; The Ark’s 
fairy-tale Christmas Grotto is set to thrill and delight, capturing the imagination of visitors - both big and small! Meet Father Christmas in his enchanting log cabin where children will receive a special gift, be entertained by his mischievous elves and have the chance to make magical reindeer food to take home - the perfect treat to leave out for Rudolph and friends on Christmas Eve.  

But the fun doesn’t stop there! Explore the magical kingdom of The Ark with its real ice rink, split-level soft play and stylish café area. Visitors to the Christmas Grotto can enjoy 5% off a visit to the ice rink on the same day - simply present your grotto ticket to staff.

Tickets cost £12 per child. Two adults per child only. Book Here

Recommended for children aged 6mths – 12yrs.
