We are carrying out extensive building work at Chestnut Centre this month. New enclosure for new species of otter the beautiful Smooth Coated Otter. New paths to make it a little easier for getting around the trail. Whilst our building team (based at New Forest Wildlife Park) enjoy sliding around in the Derbyshire mud we have sent 3 Asian short claw otters on holiday to New Forest Wildlife Park - but they will return. (Not Pickwick) During this building period we are offering a 50% reduction in admission costs. Please remember we are open only at weekends in January .
