What a fab place for families with kids and older children or indeed couples with or without dogs and/or bikes. Hire a bike or take your dog/child(ren) either way you'll be entertained as its scenic and offers go-ape challenges or kid-sized junior go-ape or kids trail activities, lake and train rides. Reasonable parking fee for a car and some good... More

The park opens at 8am and our first advice would be to arrive early. Beware of the post code and sat.nav. ... this could try to get you entering the forest from the Verwood side, instead follow the signs once on the A31. The car park and central facilities can get extremely busy and we have heard of the facility... More

We visited in order to do the Go Ape activities, which were brilliant, but I had read up and knew that there was more to visit here and that we should make a day of it. We packed a picnic and had a great time, couldn't fit it all in! Highly recommend this place for families of all ages. Older... More

This place is amazing. So many play areas and trails and then you have the little tree top walk and viewing area. We had a great day, the kids loved running around and it is a really cheap day as we had a picnic and all you pay is the car park. The picnic and play area is also really... More

Took our bikes and had a blast. Our children, 9 and 11, went on the junior 'Go Ape' which was well managed. After safety instruction they were given two routes to try each ending in a long zip wire ride. Upon completion of the zip wire ride the children then chose which route to take and headed off again. Their... More

We had a great day out in moors valley and we have visited many times. We enjoy the park, the small training and the walk through the woods with the different activities. Toilets are OK, plus I know why there are no bins but some in the many area would be useful.

I've been going to Moors Valley for as long as I can remember. As a child, my family would take me for wonderful days out doing the play trail and Moors Valley Railway.

We have been coming to Moors Valley for years and years and I even came as a teenager! Now my children are teenagers we still have to walk the same way and have a regular picture on the spider in the play trail and the tree top trail!
