Construction is now well underway for Fox Play, our new play area at Lakeside in Ferry Meadows and while this continues throughout the summer, we are inviting children to enter an art competition to share their excitement about the new play area.

With the theme of ‘Enjoying Fox Play’, children aged 3-12 can send in a drawing or painting of themselves with their families or friends having a fabulous time in this new play area. Think exhilarating zip lines, climbing, swings and water play fun along with trees and beautiful planting. You can use detailed colouring pencils or bold paints – it’s up to you.

Children can enter in one of two age categories: 3-7 year olds and 8-12 year olds and email a photo of their drawing or painting to us at [email protected]. We will publish entries on the Nene Park website and will also share selected entries throughout the summer on social media. The competition will run throughout the summer holiday from 19 July to 3 September.

At the end of the summer, two winners will be announced. The winning artists will each win a £20 voucher to spend in the Visitor Centre & Gift Shop on children’s books or toys and also have their winning entry displayed in the Park for the opening of Fox Play.

For full competition terms and conditions and to see the entries as they come in, please go to our Fox Play Drawing Competition page.
