WARWICKSHIRE COUNTRY PARKS – PARKING PERMITS
DO YOU HAVE AN OLD WARWICKSHIRE COUNTRY PARK PERMIT LURKING IN THE BOTTOM DRAWER?
Warwickshire’s Country Parks service offers great value parking permits for all of its 5 Country Parks. As of April 2016 we will no longer be charging a deposit for these plastic card permits, but will be making a charge of £5 to replace a lost, stolen or damaged permit instead.
Anyone who has a permit which they no longer use, or perhaps has a relative who has an expired permit, please come into the visitor centre at Ryton or Kingsbury, where you can get your deposit back in exchange for the permit.
This refund will be available until 31st March 2017 and applies to permits for Kingsbury Water Park and Ryton Pools Country Park only.
