The evenings are getting lighter, the days are getting ever-so-slightly warmer, and we all know what that means... Spring is here, and opening day at Heads of Ayr Farm Park is right around the corner!

2017 is going to be a busy year at the farm park, as we have planned more event days than ever before! Following on from the success of last year, Farmer's Day will make a triumphant return this May, with lots of fun and educational activities for your little farmers. Plus, everyone's favourite Pirate Day will be back in July, with real-life pirates and some special treasure for all mini buccaneers who come in costume.

We asked on our Facebook page what other events our visitors would like to see this year, and a number of you asked for Superhero Day. We are so pleased to announce that we will have some superhero special guests visiting the park this August, with lots of fun and games for all heroes in training! For even more special activity days here at the park, including Teddy Bear's Picnic, please see our events page for a full list of dates.

Coming soon is our new wild west shooting gallery, which gives the whole family a chance to test their aim and their shooting skills! Also, new to the park for this summer is Grazer's Grill – a huge new outdoor eatery that offers burgers, hot dogs, and delicious Renaldo's ice cream. A perfect lunch venue for summer days with indoor and outdoor seating, located right in the middle of the park.

Keep an eye out on our social media pages including Facebook and Instagram for regular updates, competitions, and animal announcements! Also, new for 2017 is our brand new YouTube channel, where we will be posting loads of videos starring our amazing animals. Don't forget to check it out and subscribe by clicking here.
