Go walking in woodlands, parks and nature reserves within Merseyside - it's free!
There are a whole host of woodlands within the Forest, from dramatic pine forest to small, calm urban oasis. Relax, enjoy nature and get a proven boost to your wellbeing by walking in woodland.
The whole aim of The Mersey Forest is to plant more trees across the area, helping to make Merseyside and North Cheshire into one of the best places to live in the UK. If you'd like to see the forest expand, please join us or support us with a donation.
It's hard to believe that Bidston Moss was once one of Merseyside's biggest rubbish dumps – it's now been transformed into a thriving community woodland. There's a fishing lake, cycle routes including a 2km perimeter trail and great walks around the unusual steep terrain.
A whole swathe of beautiful woodlands are scattered across the coastal part of Sefton borough near Formby, intermingled with dunes. They are one of the few remaining places in Britain where you can see the native red squirrel.
