More About The New Forest National Park

More about our park

The rare blend of open heathlands, beautiful gardens, wildlife information and ancient woodlands makes the New Forest – affectionately called the Forest by locals – a unique and very special place indeed, the underlying features of which have changed little over the centuries.

The National Park status (given March 2005) was awarded to the New Forest and immediate surrounding area in recognition of the many qualities that the Forest holds. Although received with mixed feelings, the new status will ensure the exciting and secure future that the area deserves.

Put down your phone, get some fresh air and explore the beautiful New Forest National Park. Entry is free and you can explore the park by foot on one of the many amazing walks or by bike on our well documents bike tracks. Cycling in the new forest is one of our favourite past times!

This website has been created by someone local to the New Forest, to help share the atmosphere of this very unique part of southern England.
