Last Thursday we decided to close the fairytale forest due to its large oak stock. During this time, the park’s staff were able to spray the sidewalks and replace the bark mulch. In addition, they searched for oak processionary moths or nests. After neither caterpillars nor nests were found, the fairy tale forest could be opened again today for the visitors.Weiter zur Galerie
For several years, this species has been found throughout Europe in parks, gardens and in the woods. At this time of the year, unfortunately, there is also the possibility to find them at Familypark, because we have oak trees.
As every year, we started to take action against this type of caterpillar already at the beginning of the spring.
Unfortunately we can not completely rule out that nevertheless some animals survive. They can cause allergic reactions such as itching, but are not dangerous to healthy people.
Should you see these caterpillars in the park – please do not touch them or crush them. Please report immediately to a member of staff, we will then remove the caterpillars properly.
This year we are inviting you to the long summer nights again! On four Saturdays in July and August, the park will be open until 8pm – for the same admission price! In addition, a new surprise awaits you every long summer night.
