The New Forest National Park is freely accessible for you to enjoy the open air and peaceful setting.

We aim to ensure people of all abilities can enjoy the special qualities of the New Forest National Park.  We want to encourage people to act responsibly in the countryside, and to ensure that the access and recreation opportunities on offer allow people to benefit from the Forest’s special qualities without detracting from them.

We work with local people, businesses and organisations to make sure the New Forest can be enjoyed sustainably so that it is there for future generations to experience.
