Visitors to the Welsh island of Anglesey will have more reasons to bring their walking boots
and mountain bikes
after work is comopleted on a new forest recreation plan.
The Newborough Forest is set to be transformed by the Forestry Commission, with the body revealing that work will start on October 22nd to create new routes in the forest for those who like to go walking
, or ride on bikes and horses.
It will include more car parking, a boardwalk and viewing platform across sand dunes, an information point and places for picnics and BBQs.
The intention is for this work to be complete in time for Easter 2013.
Most existing feeds should stay open during the works, the Forestry Commission has said, although some parts will inevitably be closed.
Walkers on the island who prefer sea views to trees can enjoy the shoreline along what was the Anglesey Coastal Path and is now part of the Wales Coastal Path, linked to the mainland via the Menai Bridge.
