Ryton Pools Country Park

 

 

*** IMPORTANT PARKING UPDATE***

Following the recent vandalism to our barrier machine we have been exploring options for re-instating a payment system as a matter of urgency.

Unfortunately there is a very long lead time on a replacement machine that can operate the barrier arm, therefore we will be operating as a PAY AND DISPLAY site for the foreseeable future.

We have installed one P&D machine in the Visitor Centre Car Park, adjacent to the courtyard. A second machine is to follow in the next week or so which will be sited in the car park at the far end of the drive by Ryton Pool.

If the barrier is unmanned when you arrive please pay at the machine to obtain a ticket (as oppose to coming into the Visitor Centre), and display it in your windscreen.

For permit holders please display your barrier pass on your dashboard instead.

Many thanks for your co-operation.

“The 100 acres of Ryton Pools Country Park are just waiting to be explored. The many different habitats are home to a wide range of birds and other wildlife. The excellent surfaced paths enable easy walking around the site, and provide access to an adjoining ancient woodland, Ryton Wood (by agreement with the Warwickshire Wildlife Trust).

Come and have a picnic in the peace and quiet of the Park, or enjoy refreshments at the Visitor Centre. We have a walks and events programme offering activities throughout the year to suit all age groups and interests. Pick up a leaflet from the Visitor Centre.”

Have your say!  Please help Ryton Pools Country Park bid for funding from the Heritage Lottery Fund by telling us how we could improve your visitor experience to the park.  Please take a couple of minutes to complete a short questionnaire.
