Some centres are run by the National Park Authorities and some by the local Tourist boards, either way the staff have a wealth of local knowledge to help everyone, whether you want a pushchair-friendly walk or a strenuous hike. You'll also be able to get the latest local weather reports and saftey advice. National Park centres often include exhibitions and games too.
