If you fancy a day out somewhere completely different to Heartwood Forest, why not visit Tring Park for the Family Festival? Tring Park is just behind the Natural History Museum in Tring, and shares a car park with the museum. It’s a stunning site, managed by the Woodland Trust, with open, rolling grassland (with grazing cows) and beautiful woodland walks too.

You may have noticed various creatures popping up at Heartwood Forest over the past week.


They are part of the Magical Meander, a trail which leads to the Magical Wood. They are sponsored by the Disney Store and are designed to give families even more to enjoy during a walk at Heartwood.

They represent the wildlife that thrives around Heartwood Forest.


At the centre of the Magical Wood is now a fantastic picnic table, representing all the trees that we have at Heartwood Forest.


There are a couple more sculptures still to go in, but it is hoped that the installation will be finished by the end of November. They are the work of Will Lee, who many of you may have seen carving at the Heartwood Forest Summer Festival.

Are you planning on coming to Countryfile Live this week? It is running at Blenheim Palace from Thursday 4th August to Sunday 7th August and the Woodland Trust will be there.

Amongst all the hustle and bustle, we will be hosting our own #TreeParty picnic in our Tipi’s. Come and say hello and try your hand at willow weaving, tree dressing, and our forest school or make some bug hotels for all the woodlice and spiders that are burrowed in your garden.

We also have games and activities for you to enjoy. We want to get you back to nature and there are plenty of ways to do it. Why not pick up one of our picnic packs and enjoy a picnic in the great outdoors?

For further details, go to:


We hope to see you there!
