Dunham Massey continue to celebrate 30 years of Percy The Park Keeper.

From Wednesday 12th June until Wednesday 4th September visitors to Dunham Massey can join Percy The Park Keeper on his Treasure Hunt around the gardens.

Youngsters are each given a Treasure Hunt booklet containing a map to follow in order to find the six hidden treasure locations.  Follow the clues around the park to find the treasure, and at each numbered location children can collect stamps to put in their booklet.  The race to collect all six is on!


In addition to the Treasure Hunt, there are also Crafts and Storytelling to take part in and enjoy, at regular times during the day.

The Storytelling sessions are amazing and truly get all the children involved and laughing.

*Please note dogs are not allowed in the gardens where the activity trail, craft and storytelling activities take place.
