Staffordshire is a beautiful rural county of scenic contrast, stretching from the Gritstone Hills on the edge of the Peak District National Park, to the flood plains of the river Trent, to the edge of the West Midlands conurbation. The area includes the Cannock Chase Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty, the National Forest, together with the Forest of Mercia, a community forest.
We aim to provide members of the public with the chance to sample the variety of Staffordshire countryside via an estate of approximately 6000 acres of country parks, open spaces and greenways, together with a public rights of way network of approximately 2500 miles.
A series of country trails and promoted routes are available to encourage use of the path network. A series of circular walks centred on the Staffordshire Way. This series of walks were produced with the assistance of the Ramblers Association.

Country park survey, visitor facility improvements, November 2018
We are applying for external (non-County Council) funding to improve visitor facilities at four of our country parks.
We want to spend this funding on the facilities you would like to see added or improved at our country parks. The results of this survey will help us to find out what these things should be.
Please fill in the survey on our feedback page.
