You can spend as little or as long as you like in Hainault Forest Country Park. It covers more than 300 acres, with a fishing lake, zoo, guided walks, bridleways and a Nature Trail. There are plenty of open field areas for picnics, games or dog walking, and you can hire a boat to go out on the lake. Facilities for children are excellent, with a farm and several large play areas to enjoy. There is also a great cafe.
