70 years of National Park adventure

Canoeing in the Lake District (Campaign for National Parks)
Each year around 100 million of us will experience the incredible beauty, tranquillity and fun to be had across the 13 National Parks of England and Wales. Now 70 years old, our National Parks are more important than ever, providing the space for adventure, space to be ourselves and to work through our problems. Space that’s so desperately needed in modern society.
This summer we are celebrating one of the special benefits these extraordinary landscapes provide. Adventure.
Adventure has always been at the heart of our National Parks. Throughout August, Campaign for National Parks’ #SummerofAdventure will be encouraging us all to get out and enjoy your own adventure in these special landscapes.
Adventures can be both big and small. Modest or daring. For some of us just escaping everyday life can be an adventure in itself. For others the obvious adventure to be had in our National Parks is climbing those beautiful peaks and mountains, water sports or perhaps even paragliding. We cannot take for granted the gift of having beautiful landscapes protected so people can enjoy themselves in this way.
