Essex Country Parks - Reopening Update

Essex Country Parks reopen to the public today, 21st May. This follows the easing of restrictions to outside space and safety measures being put into place to allow us to open in line with government guidance to help keep visitors and staff safe. The parks, car parks and toilets will be open to the public, however children's play equipment, visitor centres and cafes will remain closed.

Visitors will need to observe the current rules on social distancing, particularly in places that could become crowded such as the car parks and toilets.

In anticipation that the parks will be busy visitors are asked to use their judgment in relation to their visit, for example considering the time of your trip so that not everyone arrives at once.

Important changes to note before you visit:

  • Restricted opening hours of 9am - 5pm
  • Once car parks are full, access to the parks will be limited
  • You are encouraged to download the car parking payment app in advance of your visit to minimise contact with the machines

For a full statement and FAQs around the reopening please visit the ECC website here https://www.explore-essex.com/covid-19-updates-may-2020
