New car parking tariffs

 

The following locations in River Lee Country Park have introduced car parking tariffs:
•    Cornmill Meadows
•    Hooks Marsh
•    Fishers Green
•    Clayton Hill

The first hour will be free and a whole day (24 hours) will cost £2.50, prices have been guided by other charges in place locally. Visitors are free to leave and return to the car park in which they purchased the ticket within the 24 hour period and not pay again, however the car parks are locked every evening, see closing times below, these are prominently displayed at each site.

Each vehicle gets one free hour a day – so if you have a free hour starting at 08:00 one day at one of the car parks you won’t be able to have a free hour at 17:00 that day at the same car park. The machines reset themselves for this free parking at midnight.  The charges will be in place seven days a week, including Bank Holidays and will cover all vehicles, including motorbikes and vehicles driven by blue badge holders.

Lee Valley Regional Park’s open spaces attract around 4.5 million visits every year. These high quality parklands, many of which have the prestigious Green Flag award, require daily upkeep to ensure they provide the best possible habitat for plants and wildlife, and are places people continue to enjoy.

Like all bodies that receive public funding, we constantly review how we finance the activities and experiences we provide. We’ll use the money raised from car park charges to maintain our open spaces to a high standard and bring improvements in the future.

We appreciate that this is a change to what’s happened in the past, but we hope you understand reasons for doing this and continue to visit.  

PLEASE NOTE: The car parks are locked every evening at the times specified below
