Spring Activities

Spring Trail - The Season of New Beginnings

Spring is here and with it brings new life. Our parks are filled with the signs of spring and our Urban Green birds have been busy hiding eggs in 10 of our parks. Can you spot all the eggs and letters to figure out which bird laid the eggs in your local park?

A different bird has laid the eggs in each park and the colour of the egg is a hint to which bird lay it.

You can find our hidden eggs in:

Armstrong Park 
Big Waters 
City Stadium  
Exhibition Park 
Gosforth Central Park 
Hodgkin Park 
Iris Brickfield 
Tyne Riverside Country Park 
Walbottle and Throckley Dene 
Walker Park 

Our trails will be running from Monday 29 March – Sunday 18 April 2021 and can be enjoyed by those of all ages.

Spring is a time of year when many of the wild birds in our parks build a nest to lay their eggs ready for new life to hatch. Have a go at designing your own bird's egg and then what the bird that laid your egg might look like.

Take a stroll in one of our parks to get some inspiration from the many wild birds that make our parks their home.
