Stick Man Weald Country Park is a great day out in Essex.
Weald Country Park is located in the borough of Brentwood in the Essex countryside. The park is over 700 years old and has around 500 acres of woodland and grasslands to discover and explore!
History of Weald Country Park
The Country Park, (and back in the day this included an Abbey and Manor House) was a royal gift bestowed upon the local community of Waltham by King Harold back in 1062. He did this as he thought the holy cross at Waltham had saved his life!
In 1946 the estate was broken up and the house called Weald Hall was demolished in 1951 due to damage it had sustained during the war. However, you can still see some steps at one edge of the park along with the old walled kitchen garden.

Deer in Essex
When you visit Weald Country Park go armed with some carrots, cereal or bird seed so you and your little ones can feed the deer and ducks!
Our little munchkins loved this so much! Seeing the deer is a firm favourite. The deer also seem to have a big appetite and always seem very appreciative!
South Weald Park – Stick Man Weald Country Park
Weald Country Park offers a great walking route you can do with small children.
It takes you past all the main points of interest such as the Cloud Gazing Hammocks, the Bluebell Tree House and Weald Weave in a way that makes the kids think they haven’t done that much walking.
This is great for the kids great as there is always something new for them to head for and it’s never too far away.

The coffee shop has a good amount of seating with the loveliest tables that have quotes from the Stick Man story etched into the wooden tops.

It’s a delightful place to spend some quality family time and it’s completely pushchair friendly!
