Picnics and barbecues at Blackwater

Enjoy a tasty treat in the forest at our beautiful picnic area, just bring along good food and company!

Disposable barbecues can be used at Blackwater, only when placed on the barbecue stands provided. Disposable barbecues pose a particular fire risk, so we urge people not to use them anywhere else in the forest.
