Come and re-connect with nature at Panshanger - a 1000-acre historic park, situated between Welwyn Garden City and Hertford.
Designated as a Grade II* historic park and garden, Panshanger Park is owned and managed by Tarmac who are working in partnership with Herts and Middlesex Wildlife Trust to open up the historic landscape to the public.
Much of the landscape was laid out with advice from Humphry Repton and many of the historic features and views he created can still be seen on a visit to the park.
In the areas of park already open to visitors, enjoy the lakes, river, woodland, wildflower meadows and reedbed which provide a thriving habitat to an abundance of wildlife.
The park is a haven for butterflies, dragonflies, birds and wildfowl all of which can be enjoyed as you walk, cycle or horse ride on the 18 km of special trails.
Visitors can also take part in the full programme of recreational activities held throughout the year designed to appreciate the diverse wildlife, rich heritage and stunning landscapes that the park has to offer – including the flagship ‘Festival of Wildlife’ which takes place every July and the weekly parkrun on a Saturday morning.
Dog walkers are welcome but visitors should keep their dogs on a lead in areas signed as containing grazing animals and sensitive wildlife.
All year 8am-6pm (8pm in summer)
