What can we do today in and around Runnymede?

Xplorer is the perfect outdoor activity for primary and pre-school children and their families. It is a family friendly navigation challenge that is educational and fun and gives children a sense of adventure as they explore the park to find the markers. It involves a healthy mix of physical activity and decision making that the whole family can enjoy together.

Using a simple map the aim is to find a number of markers that are located around the park. At each marker children need to identify what is pictured and enjoy learning a fun fact to tell their friends. Older children will have fun competing against their friends or other family members whilst younger children will enjoy the excitement of successfully finding the markers.

Xplorer is perfect for children as they can have an adventure whilst running around in a safe and friendly environment. No experience of map reading is necessary and parents are encouraged to join in the fun!

Have fun together - Go Xplore!

The next Runnymede Xplorer event is Wednesday 26 July, 10am to 2pm at Victory Park, Addlestone and Wednesday 9 August, 10am to 2pm at Ottershaw Memorial Fields.
