We all want to enjoy the outdoors with our families and friends.


To ensure everyone has an enjoyable time in our parks and open spaces please:

  • keep your dog under control 
  • prevent your dog from approaching other people and their dogs, cyclists, livestock and wildlife
  • never let your dog worry or attack farm animals
  • make sure your dog gives wildlife a wide berth
  • take your rubbish home to prevent overflowing bins
  • leave gates as you found them   
  • give nature some space to flourish
  • leave what you find   

Opening hours

Our parks are open:

  • 1 April to 30 September from 9am to 9pm daily
  • 1 October to 31 March from 9am to 5pm daily

Please note: Any exceptions to these will be notified at the gates.
