Enjoy Pembrokeshire

Healthy Park

The Pembrokeshire Coast National Park was designated for the special features of its unique environment.

This environment is rich in natural heritage. It’s a protected, living landscape that provides an exceptional space for the physical and mental well-being of residents and visitors alike.

The Pembrokeshire Coast National Park Authority understands that human health and well-being depends upon a high quality natural environment, including clean air, water and land.

Evidence shows that the natural environment plays a vital role in supporting the health and well-being of people, by providing the settings for healthy activities to take place. A flourishing and varied ecosystem provides humans with the resources needed not just for basics like food and shelter but for wider well-being and community prosperity. So the National Park is a ‘health asset’ and has a key part to play in maintaining public health.

The Authority is working to further improve access to the Park and to unlock the potential health benefits of this very special coast and countryside. Working with our partners nationally and locally we are tackling some of the wider social causes of poor health and striving to ensure the good health of people in Pembrokeshire, across Wales and beyond.
