Please can we remind all dog walkers to keep their pets on leads in the woods during breeding season (March to September), and clean up after your furry friends.
A visit to Howe Park Wood is an opportunity to understand the lifecycle of a wood. To restore the variety of wildlife habitats typical of traditionally managed woodlands, the paths, rides and glades have all been opened up. In some areas, trees were removed to allow others room to grow, and young oaks and ash were planted to provide large woodland trees for the future.
There are several walking trails to choose from, as well as a horse riding trail. There are both hard surface footpaths suitable for wheelchairs and pushchairs and grass and woodchip paths for those who prefer to venture deeper into the wood.
