Family fun at country parks.

PARENTS hoping to entertain the children are being invited to take them to the county's country parks.

Rangers at Ryton Pools and Burton Dassett Hills have a range of activities for all the family to enjoy.

Most weekend events, for children aged six to 12, must be booked in advance by calling Kingsbury Water Park on 01827 872660. Children must be accompanied by an adult.

At Ryton Pools, near Leamington, on Sunday there will be an Easter egg hunt from 2pm to 4pm. There is no need to book and the hunt costs pounds 1.50.

Other events at Ryton Pools include Survival Dens on Tuesday, from 1pm to 3pm, a bookable event which costs pounds 2.50 per child.

And on Thursday, there will be Pond Dipping, from 1pm to 3pm, a bookable event which costs pounds 2.50 per child.

At Burton Dassett Hills, on Monday, 10am to midday, there will be an Easter treasure hunt at All Saints Church. Visitors should park at the country park and the event is free.

Jephson Gardens holds its official open day on Monday.

The Leamington Grade II listed gardens are celebrating their reopening following a pounds 4.3 million renewal.

The Aviary, a restored Victorian building, which has been turned into a snack bar, opens for the first time and residents will be admitted to the new glasshouse which contains sub-tropical plants from around the world.

The fun begins at 2pm, when a plaque will be unveiled on the glasshouse. This will be followed by archery, croquet and tennis on the top lawn and music from the North Leamington Jazz Band and the County Youth Orchestra.

In the evening, music will be provided by the Cubbington Silver Band and there will be a fireworks display at about 8.45pm.
