Safety measures


We’ve added a number of control measures to protect our visitors and team members.

Hand-wash stations have been installed in toilets, and we kindly ask that all visitors clean their hands regularly.

We have queuing and other systems in places in our toilets, café kiosk, courtyard and buildings to help the flow of visitors.

Approaching till points, we have marked spaces on the floor to help our visitors adhere to safe social distancing.

During busy periods, we will be phasing entry into the courtyard to help manage the flow of visitors for everyone’s safety.

We request all payments are made by contactless payment for enhanced safety measures. This includes car parking, café kiosk and external vendors on site.

All team members have received additional training to ensure they work safely, in line with Coronavirus procedures.


Other guidelines

Visitors are able to attend the park for fresh air and exercise, though please observe social distancing (2m) at all times.

We request that all visitors clean & sanitize their hands regularly for the safety of everyone.

Cyclists, runners and active walkers are recommended to use the grass alongside the tarmac path, to ensure social distancing (2m) is possible on narrow paths.

BBQs are not permitted in the park, as they pose a danger to the wild deer and other wildlife.

We request that all visitors take litter home, where possible, as with increased demand at parks, this will help us keep the parks safe for all wildlife.

As we are in calving season, fawns may hide in long vegetation under the watchful eye of a protective mother. Therefore, avoid walking in long grassy areas or fields with long vegetation, and ensure your dog is on a lead when entering a field with deer or close to wildlife; giving a wide berth and to not approach them.
