Due to extensive flooding and ground conditions of the overspill car park at Pugneys Country Park, access has been temporarily restricted to this area, therefore, car parking spaces are limited.
Knee rail fencing has been installed to the existing car park boundary to prevent vehicles driving over the small grassed area between existing and overspill areas.
If visitors see car park full sign’s displayed, then can we ask that they do not park around the entrances or main roads and that they consider finding an alternative park.
Following the recent announcement from the government on COVID-19, our parks and toilets remain open for residents to enjoy open spaces and the café will be serving takeaway food and drink.
