- STOP PRESS: from July 23 to Aug 8, half the park will be taken over by Dinosaurs !! Check out www.dinokingdom.com. In truth, the fencing is up already and may be there for a while after the event. Controls X, Y, Z are inaccessible as a result.
- New!! We’ve picked this ideal-for-beginners park to create a Training Pack to go with the How-To Videos.
- New! You can now record your run using the MapRun App on your Smartphone. Score points and share your results too. Buy the MapRun bundle. See the Smartphones page for details.
- Last checked March 2021 … everything OK, though much of the NorthWest corner is under water.
- Note that the Hall Gardens (separate map) have been re-opened (9am-8pm says the notice) despite ongoing repair work on the hall. STOP PRESS – the gardens are closed again due to dangerous dead trees (24 March 2021).
