We met friends for a birthday picnic and all families involved enjoyed the Superworm trail and music trail. It was an amazing family day out...and the children LOVED the adventure playground area for hours.

Another lovely day with friends at High Lodge on Monday. No matter how many times we visit there always seems to be something new to see or do!
Wanted to say a particular thanks to the two members of staff who helped me when my car wouldn't start. Above and beyond the call of duty! It was greatly appreciated.

When will the new park be opening?
Forestry Commission Response
We do not have a new park opening but there has been a delay in our new Treehouse being opened to the public. This is due to operational issues which we hope will be resolved in early autumn.
