Your Self-Guided Walking Tour
"Not having an interpreter in a park is like inviting a guest to your house, opening the door and then disappearing" Gary Everhardt, Director US National Park Service.
I apologise for 'disappearing' but will remain available to give information by email to facilitate your own self-guided tours.
I. am sorry to report that I no longer offer guided walks, due to insufficient demand. Also, the Forest Park has become too popular to allow meandering groups. However the Park is still well worth a visit if you wish to see and learn to recognise a range of native and non-native trees, or to see the 17th century Fort .
If you are still interestedI I can offer practical guidance for your walks by email. Please contact me , John, on firstname.lastname@example.org.
