Join Percy the Park Keeper and his animal friends on a Spring adventure!

It’s a bright spring morning and the perfect chance for Percy to work in Tatton’s maze of Gardens…Head off on the secret paths to help Percy find all the missing items he needs to carry out his big Spring clean-up…but try not to get lost!

Whilst Percy is hard at work, his woodland friends decide to play a trick on him and hide! Can you stick to the right path to find his sleepy forest friends and help Percy get his garden jobs done in time for their afternoon tea?

A delightful family trail in Tatton Park’s spring gardens, inspired by Nick Butterworth’s book, ‘The Secret Path’. Follow winding pathways to help Percy take care of nature and wildlife - Percy’s friend squirrel will keep you on the right track! Stop off for a selfie or two at Percy’s potting shed where you can enjoy the sights and scents of spring before heading off to finally track down his furry animal friends.
