TENI: Community Activity Day at Castlecomer Discovery Park

Join TENI at Castlecomer Discovery Park for a day of fun for all the family, on Saturday 28 August, 2021!

Set in the former grounds of the Wandesforde Estate, Castlecomer Discovery Park comprises 80 acres of stunning natural woodland and lakes, and began as a community project to rejuvenate the town of Castlecomer, following the closure of the coal mines in 1969.

Please reserve a ticket for each member of your family. Every general admission ticket includes the opportunity to participate in team challenges.

Team Challenges

Castlecomer Discovery Park offers a range of exciting and fun team-building games. These include a peg-pole traverse course, giant skis, Tower of Hanoi, and other games requiring problem-solving, communication and coordination.

To enable them to plan the day, when you reserve a ticket for each member of your family, please choose from the following add-on activities:

Zip Line & Octagon (age 12+)

Castlecomer Discovery Park is home to Ireland’s longest zip line. It is 300 metres long, and 35 metres over the ground at its highest point. Visitors zip over the stunning woodland, two lakes, and 17th-century hand-restored bridge.

The exhilarating zip line is accompanied by the Octagon High Ropes Course. Set on an octagonal frame over two levels, this presents a series of challenges in the form of nets, ropes, wooden bridges etc. The Octagon is more challenging than the existing Tree-Top Adventure Walk Course.

Tree-Top Adventure Walk & Climbing Wall (age 7+)

Discover your inner climber by completing the Tree Top Adventure Walk.

Walking high above the Sycamore tree tops, 10 metres above the ground, this 140-metre long course gives a birds-eye view of the park to those brave enough to venture up!

Reach new heights by challenging yourself on the great outdoor climbing wall. There are three climbing routes, with varying levels of difficulty for all to enjoy.

Junior Woodland Adventure Course (age 3-7)

The Junior Woodland Adventure Course was specifically designed to encourage small children to become more active and adventurous in a woodland environment.

Made of natural materials, traditional rope and Larch wood, it is a series of low-risk challenges, where children balance and steer their way through the course. It is situated 2 feet from the mulch covered surface.

There is food on site at a cafe beside the park, or you can choose to bring a picnic. They will also provide some water for everyone and an ice cream when you are all done!

This free fun day is open to all of the trans and gender-diverse community, as well as any family members who wish to come along, siblings, parents/carers, aunts, uncles etc. TENI want to bring the community together in a fun, inclusive and active way!
