Coronavirus (covid-19) update - 18 June 2020

Focusing on the health and wellbeing of everyone is our top priority. 

People who are able to access our parks are welcome to visit but we are asking that social distancing guidelines are followed at all times, staying two metres apart from others and keeping dogs on leads.

Car parks are open as are toilet facilities at Beacon Hill Country Park, Market Bosworth Country Park and Shenton Station.

Beacon Hill Cafe will be operating a takeaway service from 19 June. Opening hours will differ, visitors are encouraged to check the Facebook page for the latest information.

Playgrounds, toilets (except those listed above), 1485 Tithe Barn cafe and other visitor facilities remain closed at this time until further notice.

Our number one priority is to keeping people safe. To help ensure this, we are reducing our capacity in car parks, installing additional signage and increasing the presence of wardens and rangers on site. Ticket machines are regularly sanitised but we ask that you use contactless payment where possible and follow Government hygiene recommendations - using gloves for shared surfaces e.g ticket machines and regularly sanitising hands.

Our car parks will close when they are 80% full. This is to give you more space to park away from other cars. At busy times we expect this may make entering and exiting our car parks slower so we ask that you please be patient if this happens.

If you’re a regular visitor, our season tickets are automatically contactless. Find out about applying for a season ticket on the council's webpage.

Staying safe in these unprecedented times is vital and we'd encourage everyone to keep up to date with the latest government guidance at www.gov.uk/coronavirus.

Please be rest assured that we will continue to monitor the situation and will post any further updates on this website and our social media channels.

Please note that visitors are no longer allowed to light barbecues at our parks due to the recent hot weather. Thank you for your cooperation.
