Sherwood Pines Forest Park

About

FREE admission, car park is £2 for one hour , £4 for two hours or £6 for the day

Sherwood Pines is the largest forest open to the public in the East Midlands with over 3,300 acres to discover. It’s a centre for a wide variety of outdoor activities from a relaxed stroll to Go Ape Tree Top Adventure and much, much more.

The cycling offer is particularly popular here as Sherwood Pines is a regional centre of excellence with a way marked Family Trail, Adventure Trail and the more demanding Kitchener’s Trail. Sustrans Route 6 also goes through the forest and from here you can pick up the cycle network to the broader region, including Sherwood Forest National Nature Reserve and Clumber Park.

Facilities at Sherwood Pines Visitor Centre include cafe, cycle hire, children's adventure play trail and toilets. A short way marked woodland walk takes you to Robin Hood’s Hideout, recently declared a top ten English natural play spot. The sand play village aimed at young children and the raised walk way by the visitor centre are popular places too.

Children can also head on an exciting forest journey with Zog and his friends. Follow the trail markers through the woods to find familiar characters from the much-loved Julia Donaldson story, collecting stars as you learn, just like Zog did at dragon school, and complete interesting challenges along the way. This family day out is even better with one of their Zog activity packs. Inside you’ll find a special lens which reveals hidden pictures along the trail, a booklet with fun activities, and a Zog mask to help make your day picture perfect. Pick up your activity pack for £3 from the information point.

Events take place throughout the year and The Forestry Commission regularly host concerts and previous performers have included Paul Wellar, Keane, Pulp, Jools Holland, Erasure, Simple Minds and Status Quo among others.

 

 

Sherwood Pines is open daily from 8am to dusk, admission is free although there is a car parking charge of £2 for one hour, £4 for 2 hours or £6 for the full day.
