Visitor information and facilities - Sywell Country Park

Opening times

All country parks are open all day, everyday with free admission. However, the toilets have separate opening times.



 Sywell Country Park car parks will be closed between 8pm and 6am every weekend during October.

This is due to anti-social behaviour issues that are frequently disturbing the local residents as well as other park users.

We apologise for any inconvenience caused and aim to return to normal opening as soon as we can.
