Discover your National Park Day
Families are being invited to discover the New Forest National Park with a host of free activities in Lyndhurst on Saturday (August 22).

There will be free entry to the museum at the New Forest Centre from 10am to 4pm with a number of children's activities including making your own hobby ponies (small charge for hobby ponies).

National Park Rangers will lead guided walks to the Open Forest to learn more about its history, culture and of course the ponies. The historic 13th century Verderers’ Court will be open, including a chance to visit and picnic in the gardens of the historic Queen’s House.

Gillie Molland, Lead Ranger at the New Forest National Park Authority, said: 'The Discover your National Park Day is one of the most popular family events of the year. It’s a great way to discover more about the New Forest, it’s ponies and ancient traditions.’

Hilary Marshall, New Forest Centre Manager, said: ‘The New Forest Centre is the perfect place to start your visit to the New Forest. We’re once again delighted to be working in partnership with the New Forest National Park Authority to offer such a great day of activities.’
