Brand new children's Nature Trail at Mount Congreve Gardens is free for August

The sun is out so why not head into nature with the kids?

A brand new Nature Trail has now been launched at Mount Congreve Gardens is available free of charge for the month of August.

Just outside of Waterford City, the 70-acre gardens offer an abundance of nature to explore that all the family will love.

Both my kids and I love being outdoors so we're always on the lookout for our next outdoor adventure and I think Mount Congreve Gardens will have to be added to the list.

The new looped Nature Trail walk will keep everyone happy, with a buggy-friendly path smaller tots can snooze while older ones enjoy the series of questions for them to solve along the way.

In total, the Nature Trail is a 1.5km walk and can be completed in approximately 40 minutes so little legs shouldn't get too tired.

The gardens at Mount Congreve consist of intensively planted woodland gardens, a four-acre walled garden and 16 km of walking trails.

The gardens are located 10 minutes from Waterford City Centre 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 with last entry to the gardens at 4.30pm.
