Archive Page COVID-19 Country Parks Update

13/05/2020

In response to the latest government advice published earlier this week, we’ve now reopened our three country parks – enabling people to make more of the outdoors.

Black Park, Langley Park and Denham Country Park in the south of the county are all back open for business for visitors to exercise more, take a walk, or simply enjoy a picnic in some of the most beautiful surroundings in Buckinghamshire.

However, reopening the country parks has meant introducing several restrictions to meet current social distancing requirements. This includes the continuing closure of visitor information points, offices, cafés, playgrounds and play areas. Also, in Black Park, the Go Ape facility remains closed, as does the Temple Gardens in Langley Park. The toilets in all country parks will also be closed, and while we’re working on a longer-term solution, please bring your own hand sanitisers to keep yourself safe.

The charges to use the dedicated car parks remain in force, meaning that a ticket needs to be purchased from one of the machines. Alternatively, a valid parking season ticket should be clearly displayed. Please note that the height barriers are in place at car park entrances so no vehicles above a certain height will be able to enter. Additionally, bikes on top of cars will not be able to pass through the height barriers.

Full details of the current restrictions in the parks can be found in the section below.

Please remember to follow social distancing guidelines at all times to stay safe. Further guidance on spending time outdoors and access to green spaces during the current pandemic can be found on the government website
