Dobwalls Adventure Park

Dobwalls Adventure Park was a family-run visitor attraction in the village of Dobwalls, near Liskeard, Cornwall. Founded in 1970, by John Southern, the park was one of Cornwall's top visitor attractions.

The park consisted of two miniature railway networks complemented by large play areas and recreational grounds, both indoors and outdoors, an award-winning art gallery and woodland walks.

The park closed at the end of the 2006 season for redevelopment work. In June 2007 it was announced that it would not reopen in its original form as an adventure park.

The redevelopment projects stalled, with the John Southern Gallery and new camping site closing. The administrators were called in and the Dobwalls Adventure Park site, complete with many of the original buildings and landscapes still in existence were put up for sale by sealed bid auction.

Famous quotes containing the words park and/or adventure:

    Linnæus, setting out for Lapland, surveys his “comb” and “spare shirt,” “leathern breeches” and “gauze cap to keep off gnats,” with as much complacency as Bonaparte a park of artillery for the Russian campaign. The quiet bravery of the man is admirable.
    Henry David Thoreau (1817–1862)

    Typically, the hero of the fairy tale achieves a domestic, microcosmic triumph, and the hero of myth a world-historical, macrocosmic triumph. Whereas the former—the youngest or despised child who becomes the master of extraordinary powers—prevails over his personal oppressors, the latter brings back from his adventure the means for the regeneration of his society as a whole.
    Joseph Campbell (1904–1987)
