Update on the current situation regarding Kielder Water & Forest Park opening.
We can confirm that the Park will remain open and accessible during the period of Covid-19 national restrictions from Thursday 5 November until Thursday 3 December.
While the regulations discourage unnecessary travel, we appreciate that the area provides surroundings in which local people can enjoy their daily exercise and it is important to ensure that parking and other facilities are available for this.
For those further afield, we would encourage people to spend their outdoor time closer to home, and we look forward to having you visit us again at a time when travel is more appropriate.
In line with national guidance, please respect our environment, other visitors and residents, staying clear of residential areas, local shops, and services.
