London Borough of Croydon

Croydon boasts 127 parks and open spaces with heathland, lakes, chalk meadows and ancient woodland, home to wildlife, trees and flowers. This summer we want to encourage every child and every family to go outdoors to explore the wild and green side of Croydon.

We are setting you 30 unique challenges to complete in Croydon over the summer. Complete as many challenges as you can, tell us about it and become an official Croydon Outdoor Explorer and receive a certificate. Complete all 30 challenges over the summer to say “well done!” we’ll also send you the official Croydon Outdoor Explorer badge and a small prize.

Once you have completed your challenges just complete our short feedback survey and we’ll send you your prize(s) depending on how many activities you have completed
