East Links Family Park is a farm themed activity park that brings out the child in all ages!Discover a delightful world of endearing farm animals by enjoying a train safari through the paddocks or getting up close in the small animal barn. You can also take a leisurely walk round and the information boards will tell you all about the animals you can see. If the kids feel like a change – there is LOTS for them to do.The new four level Fortress is an adventure itself with over 15 different activities including a massive four lane slide, climbing frames, rat tunnels and banqueting towers.For the smaller children there’s a soft play area, and the older more adventurous can enjoy go-karts, trampolines, jelly belly, ball blast arena, hay barn with climbing walls and expend their excess energy in just having fun!Enjoy being spoiled in the Family Park’s Café or in fine weather, pack a picnic.Whatever your age, you will be totally involved in PLEASURE!!

Not the first time I have visited this park with my daughter and her family, but the first time I have noticed the prices. I think £15.00 for a 3 year old is pushing it a little as it's the same price as an adult....More

There is a softplay barn which is great for a 1 year old, and a softball barn which is great for that age if its not too full. I've taken mine there at 1 and they didn't complain of being bored ;-)
