Visitors to Astley Park can enjoy fun games and activities in the Farmhouse Activity Space this February half term.
Games of the past will be set up in the Farmhouse Activity space for seven days over February half term and will include historic games Mancala, Tabula and Fox and Geese as well as other Victorian classics like table skittles and snakes and ladders.
Councillor Peter Wilson, Deputy Leader of Chorley Council, said: “Astley Park is a beautiful place to enjoy a day out with the family so we have prepared for some fun games to be in the Farmhouse Activity Space for February half term.
“The fun takes the shape of ‘games of the past’ and will feature Victorian classics including table skittles and snakes and ladders. Plus there will be many more games to play.
“Families can also enjoy the exciting play areas, Pets Corner, the tennis courts and a tasty drink and snack in Café Ambio.
“We hope that many people will visit Astley Park this February half term and enjoy what’s on offer.”
From Saturday 10 to Sunday 18 February, excluding Thursday 15 and Friday 16, fun games of the past will be set up in the Farmhouse Activity Space from 12pm-4.30pm.
