This Summer we had a fantastic time on our Summer Outing to visit Monk Park Farm, in North Yorkshire.
The children who use our services here at The Island York were able to feed a variety of animals. There were lambs, sheep, goats, calves, pigs, donkeys, llamas, alpacas, hens, peacocks, rabbits and guinea pigs. The rabbits and guinea pigs were extremely popular!
There were also other popular features and attractions including an adventure playground, nature trail, and lake. The children could also play in the pedal car/tractors arena as well as go-carts and barrel rides.
At lunchtime the children and adults each received a pack up picnic lunch followed by their own choice of ice cream, which they thoroughly enjoyed!
Some of the comments and quotes from the children were:
– “this is the best day of my life”
– “go-carts are well cool”
– “the animals were so cute, especially the guinea pigs”
