Explore Parkhurst Forest
(Average user rating: 4 unrated 3.3/5)

The attractive setting of the car park and adjacent picnic site is the start point for exploring the forest.


There are red squirrels in the forest and a hide, which is the perfect place to view all the local wildlife from.

We have always loved Parkhurst Forest having enjoyed our walks there for over 40 years. We do think the dog mess is a problem though. There are two bins on the path going north-west from the car-park, but nothing on the paths going east and west. Extra bins in these locations would help.
