Taking a baby out for a walk in the forest can be inspiring, fun and great exercise.
The government has changed its guidance on measures to help prevent the spread of coronavirus in England.
The New Forest National Park Authority issued a statement saying: “Our priority is to keep people and the Forest safe and so we are working with partners to lift the restrictions carefully and in a measured way.
“Our partners are opening a number of their car parks and this will be kept under review (see Forestry England and New Forest District Council’s websites). But, in line with Government restrictions, our local attractions, pubs, campsites, restaurants and hotels remain closed, along with public toilets.”
The New Forest is also at HIGH RISK OF WILDFIRES. Barbecues are banned on the Forest.
There has been an influx of visitors to the forest. Please only park in official car parks and stick to established walking paths.
