CELEBRITY VISITORS – We have seen a number of celebrity visitors at the Farm Park. These include Rugby star Phil Vickery, a number of other players from Gloucester Rugby, Kim Medcalf who played Sam in Eastenders, Tracy Shaw, Ryan Thomas and Tina O’Brien from Coronation Street and Melinda Messenger from TV.
RE-BRANDING – Following the decision of the Forest of Dean District Council in the autumn of 2015 not to give a dispensation to allow the Farm Park to keep non-British species of animals and birds, the Management have been undertaking a lengthy review.  This is still very much ‘work in progress’ and has, to date, involved consultation with visitors and other third parties.  Your observations on what our Park should offer would be greatly welcomed so do e-mail us with any thoughts you may have. 
ADDITIONAL PLAY EQUIPMENT – The Management therefore believe that extending the existing indoor facility and adding in more play equipment is the way forward.  Added to this should be more outdoor activities which would include the go-kart course, crazy golf course, an outdoor playground and so forth. As well as a Model and Hobbit Village in the near future.
CONSERVATION AND ENVIRONMENTAL WORKS  - The Dick Whittington Fun Park takes an on-going programme of conservation work for the environment. This includes such things as maintenance of an old Gloucestershire apple orchard, hedge-planting, willow planting, bird-nesting boxes and woodland planting. A Hazelnut Grove has been established. When you visit, do enjoy our Nature Trail through the Bluebell Wood.
OUR POLICY ON DOGS - We allow guide dogs but, for bio-security reasons, we discourage people bringing dogs near our animals and into the Centre. Although you can book them into the Doggy Day Care at Phoenix Salon in the Courtyard.  There are walks along the Nature Trails through the Valley that are very suitable for dogs on leads.
