Winter Activities

Snow Fairy Winter Trail

Monday 20 December 2021 – Sunday 23 January 2022

As the last of the leaves fall and the temperature drops, winter has arrived in our parks. But there is magic in the air. Take a walk along our park paths, look between the branches and you might find a glimpse of our Snow Fairy and the snowflakes that she has sprinkled around five of our parks.

Each snowflake is unique, one of a kind, just like you and our different parks. Go explore and see if you can spot our Snow Fairy and how many snowflakes she has hidden?

You can find our Snow Fairy Winter Trails in:

Denton Dene South
Exhibition Park
Iris Brickfield Park
Paddy Freemans Park
Walker Park

We’d love to see what you found, simply tag @urbangreenncl on Facebook or Twitter.


Get creative with nature this festive season!

We have created some FREE downloadable activity sheets to help you have extra fun in our parks and allotments this festive season. 

Make some natural Christmas decorations  - CLICK HERE to download the activity sheet

Go for a winter adventure in one of our 33 parks and look out for some fallen twigs and sticks. Collect some and take them home, and see if you can create a seasonal decoration for your tree or home. You could make one as a gift for a friend, relative or someone who has been kind to you this year and put a smile on their face.     


Make a woodland friend - CLICK HERE to download the activity sheet

Did you know that many of our parks have pine trees in them? At this time of year, you can often find fallen pine cones nearby. Go out and see if you can find one. These can be made into all sorts of wonderful decorations and ornaments. We've created a woodland friend with ours. Why not download our activity sheet to see how?
