Richmond Park Walks with Remarkable Trees
We are delighted to announce the arrival of the Friends’ set of 4 new self-guided walks –‘Richmond Park Walks with Remarkable Trees’.
Available now at the Visitor Centre
All the walks are circular routes starting from a car park and between 2 and 5km long. Each walk is in its own easy-to-use 12 page booklet, and the set of 4 walks is on sale now for £5 at the Visitor Centre by Pembroke Lodge car park.
Trees are one of the glories of the Park and one of the main reasons why it is a designated National Nature Reserve. The purpose of these walks is to allow you to find out more about the trees and also to have a good walk in areas you may not otherwise get to see.
Each walk features a detailed route map and is set out in stages with clear directions to the next stage and information about the trees you will see along the way, as well as many high-class photos to help you identify them.
The walks are printed on FSC certified paper and the set, which also includes an introductory leaflet and a Tread Lightly leaflet, comes in a sturdy string and washer envelope – this will keep them safe and enables us to sell them without a plastic cover.
