Where will your half term adventure take you?

25 May 2016

This half term look no further than Essex County Parks for great value outdoor activity and adventure for all the family.

Visit Stick Man at Weald, build sand castles at Cudmore Grove, discover the Gruffalo Trail at Thorndon, take the dog for a walk at Danbury or Belhus Woods or rise to the challenge with Sky Ropes at Great Notley.

Essex Country Parks are also re-launching their car parking season ticket which gives customers unlimited parking at all the country parks. Season tickets are just £40 for six months or £65 for 12 months and available to purchase at all the parks.

Councillor Kay Twitchen, Deputy Cabinet Member for Sustainability said: “Investing in a country park season ticket is a great excuse to explore all our country parks and try all the activities on offer. Take advantage of visiting somewhere new, knowing you don’t have to search for loose change or think about parking costs. It isn’t commonly known that car parking costs are the main source of income for our country parks and the money goes exclusively towards maintaining the parks and protecting wildlife.”

From maintaining paths and play equipment to ensuring trees and plants are safe and healthy, from keeping the parks free of litter and caring for flora and forna there is a lot of work to do to ensure Essex Country Parks are great, safe places to visit and this couldn’t be done without the added income from car parking charges.
