A local visitor attraction last week invited members of the town’s tourism trade to highlight their recent expansion.
The Park Rose Birds of Prey centre, on the Park Rose complex, Covert Lane, Carnaby, welcomed members of the Bridlington Tourism Association, local hotel and guest house owners, and councillors to the site.
Clare Steele, of the centre, said: “I think it’s important that everyone works together, and it was a great event to get everyone here and let the tourist trade know what we have on offer. It works both ways because we often get day trippers asking us for recommendations for places to stay, so having contacts is helpful, and we will now start attending Bridlington Tourism Association meetings.
“We’ve recently expanded by eight acres, and have more animals, pig racing, donkey rides and we have launched summer holiday packages for children.”
The park is set in woodland and provides the perfect setting for adults and children of all ages to have fun and learn about nature with a range of birds of prey and animals - all of which are rescued - including owls, hawks, meerkats, alpacas, wallabys and more.
Coun Jane Evison, portfolio for economic development, tourism and rural issues at East Riding Council, said: “It is a wonderful way to promote to local businesses, and it is a great centre.
“When people come and visit they can tell a lot more about what is on offer, businesses will be much more likely to recommend to guests when they have seen it themselves.”
