Our country park car parks are now open and normal parking charges in operation. Thank you for your patience and support during these challenging times.
Sywell Country Park car parks will be closed between 8pm and 6am, at weekends during October.
We apologise for any inconvenience caused and aim to return to normal opening as soon as we can.
This is due to anti-social behaviour issues that are frequently disturbing the local residents as well as other park users.
The daily cost for parking is the same price for each Country Park. You can also purchase an annual car parking pass for Northamptonshire County Council managed country parks.
Daily parking costs
- The daily cost to park at each of the country parks is £3.20 for up to 4 hours or £5.20 for up to 8 hours or £7.20 for up to 12 hours.
