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 one off not-fo-profit  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 £1.00 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.

The Ark Grotto is a one-off event and not for profit initiative. All profits will be donated to Fernheath Play Charity No. 1148263, a local charity which provides specialist free play and short play breaks to fully able and disabled children.
