Thames Chase Forest Centre reopening

Following the most recent government guidance and close co-ordination with Forestry England, we are planning to open Thames Chase Forest Centre, playground, cafe and facilities on Saturday 11th July 2020.⁠ 

We are working hard to prepare the site before this date, and have some planned work taking place, including repairing and resurfacing the drive. This will begin on Wednesday 1st July and is expected to continue until Tuesday 7th July. During this time, there will be no vehicle access to the site. The site will be accessible on foot using the pedestrian entrances, but the Centre, cafe and toilets will not be open. The entrance drive and Centre will remain closed over the weekend 4th - 5th July. Please check the website or social media channels for the latest information before setting out.

Please also continue to follow the government and NHS guidance on staying safe outside your home, and maintain social distancing when visiting. We know many are keen to get out, so to avoid crowds, please be aware you may need to be prepared to turn around if the car park looks busy or full, and come another time. ⁠ ⁠

We hope you will enjoy the space and fresh air with a safe, relaxing visit. ⁠ ⁠
