PARK wardens came up with an original idea to try to draw in the crowds.
They staged a buggy race at Ravens- knowle Park, Moldgreen, as part of a continuing drive to attract more families.
The race around the park aimed to encourage mothers and their young children to get some exercise in the fresh air and also show them the sights the park has to offer.
Park warden Diane Clifford said: "We will be making a real effort to promote the park over the next few months.
"We are looking to offer lots of new events, such as bowling, cricket and rounders tournaments.
"Our aim is to get families using the park and getting much-needed exercise."
The next buggy race at the park is at 10.30am on Wednesday, March 22.
