List of parks, picnic areas and greenways

Coronavirus - latest guidance 

Under the latest government guidance, our country parks, local sites and public rights of way remain open for local residents. However facilities on country parks are closed - this includes visitor centres, toilets, cafes, play areas, barbecue facilities and car parks.

For everyone’s safety, we would ask you to please avoid unnecessary travel to sites. Please stay at home as much as possible and take your exercise as near to home as you can. 

Please follow this guidance when taking your daily exercise: 

  • Avoid non-essential travel, use parks and routes nearby. You can view your area by  checking our online map.
  • Go out alone or with members of your household
  • Keep the recommended distance if you encounter other users, staff or landowners - 2 metres (6 feet) apart 
  • No gatherings of more than two people - no group activities or events 
  • Follow the  Countryside Code
  • You may want to wear gloves to prevent infection when using gates and stiles
  • Wash your hands when you return home

Please help us to keep the sites safe, usable and wildlife friendly by: 

  • Taking your litter home so our staff can focus on critical operations
  • Many wild animals are now rearing young, as are livestock on farmland, please stay on paths and keep dogs on leads 

Please note that our Rangers and Rights of Way staff are focusing on essential duties, so may not be able to respond to other matters at this time. 

If you encounter issues on the path network  please report these online.



Our country parks and picnic areas are great places to take a walk, enjoy nature or get active. Select the links below to find out more about the sites.
