COVID-19 Country Parks Update

Country Parks Update 06/01/2021

Buckinghamshire’s three country parks, Black Park, Langley Park and Denham Country Park in the south of the county all remain open – enabling local people to use outdoor space for exercise. Thorney Park is also open.

Please remember to follow the latest government advice for your local area and social distancing guidelines at all times to stay safe. 

We are continually working on safe solutions to reopening all facilities within each of the parks, taking into account government guidelines.  However, at the current time we have some restrictions in place.

The charges to use the dedicated car parks remain in force, meaning that a ticket needs to be purchased from one of the machines or you can pay for parking using RingGo. We would recommend bringing your own hand sanitiser for use. Alternatively, a valid parking season ticket should be clearly displayed. Please note that the height barriers are in place at some of our 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.

If you visit and the car park's are full please consider coming back at another time. Please be considerate to our staff and do not drop litter in our beautiful open spaces.

Our offices in Black Park remain closed to visitors and our phone lines are currently only open 9am -12.30pm, Monday - Friday. The easiest way to contact us is via email at countryparks@buckinghamshire.gov.uk
