View Venue Website
Moors Valley is a joint venture between Dorset Council and Forestry England.
The park was much more popular than had originally been envisaged and was bursting at the seams with half a million visitors by 1990. An additional 170 acres were purchased to allow for expansion of the golf course and a second lake to be built, the Visitor Centre was extended to make way for a Country Shop and new toilets. At the same time, the Tree Top Trail and Play Trail were constructed in the forest. Over the following ten years, the park’s popularity grew still further with approximately 750,000 visitors each year, making it one of the most popular parks in the south of England.
Forestry England and Dorset Council are continually looking for ways to improve Moors Valley to ensure it stays as one of the best countryside recreation facilities in the country. In recent years a new toddlers play area, cycle hire centre,, high ropes course, and orienteering course have been added and there is a rolling programme to improve and replace structures on the play trail.
