Lake Grounds, Portishead

With lots of green space, a lake and situated by the sea, Lake Grounds makes a great spot for a picnic. There’s lots to see and do, from hiring a rowing boat on the lake, to playing a round on the pitch and put golf course. There is also a free children’s playground, however there are also some rides you need to pay for including trampolines. There is also a cafe with outdoor seating area.

Puxton Park, Hewish

40 acres of fun just about sums up Puxton Park. There are over a dozen different activity areas here to entertain children from toddlers right through to teens and beyond – check out the mammoth slides in the Play Barn. Walk-on-water balls, bumper boats, zip lines and even JCBs factor into the experience at this award winning attraction. And if you need some quiet time, there are always the cute farm animals to pet, cows to milk, owls to get close to and even a miniature railway to let you rest for a bit. Open 7 days 9am to 5.30pm. Puxton Park, Cowslip Lane, Hewish BS24 6RQ. Telephone 01934 523500.
