Dinosaur Trail

Our famous Dinosaur Trail in the Wilderness Garden is very popular with younger visitors. The 72 life-sized dinosaurs and prehistoric creatures can be found grazing amongst the shrubbery. Exploring the woodland paths, children can learn about the T-Rex, the Woolly Mammoth and other fascinating pre-historic creatures. There are information boards throughout the Dinosaur Trail and a huge chalk board for creating your own ‘cave-man drawings’.  Look out for the wind-up sound box and make some dinosaur roars.

Adventure Playground

The Adventure Playground is a favourite destination for our younger visitors. Children can play all day on the swings, slides and play equipment. There is also a zip wire and a new bouncy castle, plus a trim trail for grown-ups. Have fun with the interactive splash-play water features.

The Playground’s cash-only kiosk serves drinks and ice-creams. Please feel free to bring a picnic and enjoy the Park.  Large covered picnic shelters are provided for visitors to use. There is plenty of space for car and coach parking near the Adventure Playground and in the barns car park. Well-behaved dogs on leads are welcome in Knebworth Park, but are not permitted in the House, Gardens, Dinosaur Trail or inside Fort Knebworth. Working assistance dogs may be taken into all areas.
