Tree Treasure Trail


2-4.30 pm

Art Exchange

admission free

Join us for a Treasure Trail around Wivenhoe Park!

Artist Elaine Tribley has created a new map of Wivenhoe Park, that leads us on a journey of discovery, taking in the parkland’s most beautiful trees. With challenges to overcome on the way, it’s a wonderful way to explore this hidden gem of a park.

At each tree there is something for you to collect and bring back to Elaine  – and together we will play with clay, making the animals and trees featured in John Constable’s famous painting ‘Wivenhoe Park’. Painted in 1816, this amazing painting now lives at the National Gallery in Washington, USA, but it was first painted on an easel here in Wivenhoe Park!

Admission Free – suitable for all ages. There’s no need to book, just drop by.

Wear sturdy-ish shoes, especially if its been raining!

Here’s a map to help you find us: Art in the Park Map

Parking is free at the weekends! There are cafes, toilets and baby changing facilities nearby.

This event has been made possible through the Essex County Council Arts and Cultural Fund, which supports organisations and creative practitioners to deliver an exciting range of activities to engage with and bring communities in Essex together.
