Our work at Haldon Forest Park
Haldon Forest Park is not just one of Devon’s most loved outdoor destinations, it sits within 1,500 hectares of working forest that stretches across the Haldon Hills. Since the 1920s, Haldon Forest has been managed by Forestry England to grow timber for the nation. Now cared for by a dedicated recreation team alongside the forest management team, Haldon Forest Park also helps people of all interests, ages, and abilities to connect with nature.
