Park Behaviour

The park is enjoyed by all people of all ages, especially families with children. As such we expect the behaviour of all visitors to help achieve the well-being of all our visitors.

There are laws to help us reinforce this philosophy, but we fully expect everyone to look out for each other and to be considerate.

Some of the behaviour we expect includes, but is not limited to:

Park Life
All forms of life in the park must be respected and are protected by law. Any reports of deliberate distress or harm being caused to any life will be pursued to the highest level.

Please keep your dog under control at all times and don’t allow it to be a nuisance to other park users. Do not allow your dog to chase or worry other wildlife. All park bins can now be used to dispose of dog waste so please pick up dog waste and put it in the nearest bin.

Cycling is allowed on all roads and designated cycle routes, but please note that there is a 9mph speed limit.

You are very welcome to hold a picnic of less than 20 members in the park, but please remember to take your litter home. If you look to meet more than this number of people in the park then please let us know via our hire the park page.

Please note that BBQs are not permitted in the park under any circumstances due to concerns for other visitors and to wildlife.

Camping, including tents and marquees, is not permitted in the park.
