Thank you for paying to park. We use the money you spend on parking to look after the nation’s forests. We don’t make a profit and rely on the support of our visitors and members, so every penny you spend is invested by Forestry England back into the management of our woodlands and is needed to make Sherwood Pines a great place for a day out.
From March 29, Outdoor gatherings of either 6 people (the rule of 6) or 2 households will be allowed. Many other restrictions will remain in place, so please follow government guidance and check our guide for what to expect if you are planning to visit.
You must stay at home if you have coronavirus symptoms or are self-isolating.
Keeping you safe
Consider these important points before you visit:
The children’s play area is open. Help to keep everyone safe by following these rules:
When you visit the nation’s forests, remember it is your responsibility to follow the guidance on staying safe outside your home. We are cleaning our car parking machines throughout the day but for your own safety please bring hand sanitiser with you to use after touching the machines.
If you are uncomfortable with the idea of touching the car park payment machines, you may want to consider becoming a member. As well as supporting the forest you will receive a 12 month car park pass. Find out more.
Protect the NHS by avoiding high risk activities. Ride within your abilities and play it safe. We have adapted our first aid response to take account of Covid-19 and we may not be able to provide our usual level of help.
