Country park updates - Coronavirus

Our country park car parks, toilets, play areas and cafes (take away service) will remain open and normal parking charges in operation. Visitors are expected to manage their own social distancing when at the parks and show respect for other park users. Thank you for your patience and support during these challenging times.

We have taken the necessary measures to ensure our parks are safe for visitors. We would therefore encourage residents and visitors to adhere to the current government guidelines when visiting our country parks.

Season tickets

Change of registration number can only be requested via our online form, not at the Rangers' office. Your existing ticket will need to be posted to Brixworth Country Park. Money raised in the parks from car parking goes back into maintaining our wonderful parks for you to enjoy.


Our public toilets are open. See individual park pages for opening times. You will need to be prepared to manage your own social distancing whilst using them. Because of the limited space inside, we are asking for just one person or household per entry point into the toilet block at a time. Please ensure proper hand washing before you leave.

Play areas and cafes

Cafes are open for take away menu at all parks. 

Play areas are open, however some items may still be closed off for safety reasons. In keeping with good health and safety standards we recommend all play area users adhere to the following guidance when visiting:

Jungle Parc

The high ropes at Irchester Country Park is open for business.

Indoor areas

Indoor public areas, meeting rooms and visitor centres are closed.


Fishing is permitted.
