About Whinlatter Forest Park
If you happen to visit Keswick in Cumbria do not miss out on Whinlatter Forest Park, for this superb gift of nature is a real treat for all the family.
The park lies in a superb setting overlooking Bassenthwaite Lake and picturesque Lorton Valley. It offers a year round programme of events for all ages, and for visitors who prefer a little gentle guidance there are trails to follow including children's nature trails. Along these you will see fantastic sculpture and various reconstructions to do with forest life. There is a fascinating reconstruction of a Badger hide and other similar experiences.
Whinlatter is an ideal place for bird-watching, it takes part in the Lake District Osprey project, and for youngsters there is an adventure playground.
There are pretty, sheltered glades where you can enjoy a picnic, and if you are feeling energetic you could try tackling the permanent orienteering course.
One of the beauties of Whinlatter Forest Park is its abundance of wild flowers and rare plants.
