The seventy-acre Mount Congreve Gardens and walking trails will be a treasure-filled land for little ones on the day as each child will be armed with a Treasure Map from which they will need to follow the trail and solve the series of clues along the pathways in order to find their destination point which will be the Bouncy Castle Village!
Speaking of the upcoming summer event Estate Manager Ray Sinnott said: “Our Summer Fun days are hugely popular with families looking for a fantastic value fun day out. A visit to beautiful gardens makes for a great day out with kids. They get to spend time outdoors, there’s are soft places to run around in, it helps them connect with nature and enjoy the seasons.”
Every child that takes part in the Treasure Hunt will also receive a gift. A local food pop-up market will also be on-site with the very best local food and crafts.
The gardens at Mount Congreve, Waterford, consist of around seventy acres of the intensively planted woodland garden and a four-acre walled garden with 16 km of walking trails. The gardens are located just 10 minutes from Waterford City Cente overlooking the majestic River Suir and direct access to the adjacent Waterford Greenway. The gardens are open every day for the summer, from 11 am to 5.30 pm. Last entry to the gardens at 4.30pm.
