The Park offers adventures and interests to all ages. Grass stretches wide, flat and sloping, for all sorts of games and activities. There is an excellent playground with a pleasant sand-pit; a boating pond - for most of the year; miriad birds - land and water based and of course the squirrels and deer. For other fun and learning there is the adjacent National Maritime Museum with its special galleries for young visitors and, for older children, the Observatory. Within the yearly programme of activities and events  in the Park are several specifically for children. The Wildlife Centre and associated  Nature Trail stimulate young children's interest.  The interactive theatre project "Living History", played with actors, attracts pupils studying Key Stage 2 from local schools.
