Panshanger Park has announced the opening of the western approach path, a permissive bridleway which can be accessed on foot, horse or bike.
The path links the western side of the park to the Panshanger Great Oak and the remains of Panshanger House.
The route passes through what used to be the old sand and gravel processing plant before the restoration works were completed.
The land has been restored with replaced soils and then seeded with grasses and wildflowers.
Michael Charlton, mineral estates manager for Tarmac, said: “We are very excited to be able to open the new path now the restoration in this area has been completed.
