Essex County Council owns eight country parks and a heritage site. We manage these sites to: 


  • give residents access to open spaces, woodland trails and historic parklands
  • protect and encourage rare and important plants and animals.

The Visit Parks website contains information about each park, including its facilities, car parking costs and events.

There are also many urban parks across Essex. Find out about these by contacting your district and borough council.
