Teessaurus Park to Feature on Holidays TV Show

By Published April 07, 2021

CHILDREN across Teesside will get to see one of the area's unique attractions on TV during the Easter holidays.

Middlesbrough's Teessaurus Park will feature in educational programming on Teesside TV this week.

Children will get to meet the park's dinosaurs and learn fun facts about them in a film in association with the Redcar & Eston School Sports Partnership.

Families will need to keep an eye out for the Redcar dinosaur too!

The exposure for the park comes after Middlesbrough Council committed to spending £250,000 on improvements. The changes will include the introduction of a café, play equipment and new lighting and sound effects.

Cllr Mieka Smiles, Executive Member for Communities and Education, said: "Children right across the Middlesbrough area love Teessaurus Park and they'll be excited to see the dinosaurs on TV.

"It's great that the park can be used as an educational asset. We'll be looking to work closely with schools as we make it so much better than it already is later this year."

The show featuring Teessaurus Park is due to be broadcast on Friday April 9 from 7am.

Teesside TV will broadcast shows in three blocks from Tuesday April 4 - Friday April 9. Separate shows aimed at those aged 4-8 (7am - 8am), 9-12 1pm - 1.30pm) and 13-18 (7pm - 8pm) will cover topics from circus skills, yoga and arts and crafts to languages, boxing and mindfulness.

The programming has been out together with other North East councils using the Holiday Activities Fund from government.

Teesside TV can be seen via Freeview channel 7.
