Maintenance work to a bluebell wood in St Albans has finished, and the car park is now open again to visitors.
The main entrance to Heartwood Forest car park has been closed since January 9 to give it a revamp, including filling in potholes and resurfacing the car park.
While it was closed, there were 12 other entrances open for visitors.
Louise Neicho, site manager for the Woodland Trust, said: “We had to close the car park temporarily to carry out essential maintenance works, which will improve it for all our visitors.
“This includes resurfacing the main car park to prevent potholing so it is a welcoming and safe environment for everyone.”

The wood is a popular destination for walkers - and bluebells should be blossoming in the spring.
It is about 347-hectares of land, and when the forest is fully planted it will be one of the largest continuous native forests in England.
