Not for under 3 for sure. I had a hard time with my little one as bigger kids were all over the place passing fast next to my child. But I loved it as every tree had it's name on it
Fab balancing exercise for the kids as well as adults...is really fun!
Amazing... Kids loved it and every kid will love it
We saw the log trail with children but there is currently a huge development of the Children's area near the Brentford gate. It is all boarded up at moment. We went on Sunday and saw a trapeze performance to cello music in the Newly opened Temperate House. Worth seeing from the gallery above. Performances from 12.30 at weekends. We also went to the Royal Kitchens near Kew Palace free to enter but very bare. No doubt they will be developed to the high standard of Kew Palace which is Really Interesting.
Nice long log trail. Loops round. Definitely need to keep an eye on the kids while they use it. Less if they're older, but since there's technically only one log, there can be kids coming the other way and this can lead to bumps. Definitely suggest trousers and proper shoes (regardless of the glorious weather) as parts have complete tree coverage. There's a couple of large hollowed out logs which they can get in ( if they're brave enough) Definitely worth a visit if you're at Kew. A nice little feature is they have stenciled the name of each wood in the tree. Older kids will get a kick at trying to find the difference between the woods.
