Natural Resources Wales (NRW) closes all car parks, play areas and toilets in the reserves, woods and forests. All mountain bike trails are also closed.

The UK and Welsh Governments have closed caravan parks, campsites, tourist hotspots and popular beauty spots to visitors.

In support of this, NRW has closed all visitor centres, car parks, play areas and toilets on the reserves, woods and forests that they manage.

Mountain bike trails are also closed. No maintenance is being carried out until further notice on mountain bike trails.

Gary White, Incident Manager at NRW said;

“We are dedicated to keeping the public, and our staff as safe as possible.

“We have closed all car parks, play areas and toilets in the reserves, woods and forests that we manage.  We have also closed mountain bike trails and no maintenance is being carried out on them until further notice.

“NRW advice is to take care of yourself and others by following Public Health Wales and Government guidance”.

“We need to avoid unnecessary travel, so make your walk a local one; do not get into your car to travel to one of the woods we manage. The walking trails in the woodlands remain open but you must exercise alone or with your own householdand, if encountering other people, maintain the social distancing rule.”

NRW will keep updating the public through its website and social media channels.
