Parks & Countryside Events

Most of our events are suitable for everyone, however, if you have limited mobility or special needs it is wise to check that the event is suitable by telephoning the park beforehand.

We provide a range of walks, which we hope will cater to everyone’s taste. Please note that a Ranger or Rights of Way officer will always be at the meeting place at the start time, to advise of possible cancellation in bad weather. Please wear comfortable walking shoes/boots and bring waterproofs, warm clothing and a packed lunch and a drink if it is a long walk.

Forthcoming Events

Please Note, some events may be postponed or cancelled due to circumstances beyond our control. You are advised to check with the event organiser beforehand.
