I think that Monikie park has got something for everyone. There are walks, an amazing play area and water activities. There is also a restaurant in the grounds and an ice cream shop.

Catch the Dragon Matrix event in October if you can. A bit bonkers with some whimsy thrown in. Kids and adult (and dog) all enjoyed the walk and artwork on display.

Granny booked this trip for us, so we weren't sure what to expect! But we loved it! Kids were in awe of the holograms at each spot and mummy and granny enjoyed all the Forrest all lit up so pretty! Was very magical! Glad we picked time we did (630) as when we were leaving it was so busy! Shop... More

Just been to Monikie park to see dragon matrix. It was brilliant, I highly recommend it. Using your phone, you go on the hunt for the dragon eggs. The creatures and surroundings are amazing. I had my nieces of 5 and 8 with me and they loved it as did I. It took us just over an hour, but it... More

Reviewing Dragon Matrix at Monikie Country Park. Having attended the The Enchanted Forest last year, I was looking forward to this event. I was not disappointed. Lighting is no where near as good as the enchanted Forest, however the fact it was an interactive event I would say made it more fun for the children. The staff were very good,... More

Not a bad park but cafe was shut and no activities were on everything was closed so was a bit miffed for the kids the walks were good and the park was great for the kids pick nick area was nice, but £2.70 to park and nothing to be open was a bit annoying.

What a hidden gem! Lots to do for everyone. Lovely walk, option to do waterspouts, playground for the smaller children. Even the cafe is decent. £2.70 for parking that goes back into the park, amazing value. I hate paying for parking normally but this I really don't mind.

Having not had to play to enter a country park before the £2.70 fee on entering was a but of a surprise. Nevertheless we paid and parked. We quickly realised there wasn't much for a 3 year old to do as a lot of the things in the play park were quite high. But we did have a nice little... More
