Coronavirus (COVID-19) Update

Stover Country Park remains open for visitors. The visitor centre and toilets are closed, although this will be regularly reviewed. Car parking charges still apply – this is a crucial source of income for the Park. Please ensure you bring the correct change with you, (£1.70 for 2 hours or £3.50 all day) or if paying by phone we recommend you download the Phone And Pay App by clicking here before travelling as our mobile internet signal can be intermittent. We ask all visitors to comply with social distancing guidelines issued from the Government and to please take litter home to keep the park clean and safe for all visitors and wildlife.

Cycling is only permitted on our multi use tarmacked route through the park, shown with a red dotted line on our map. Cycling is strictly prohibited in all other areas of the park, where the paths can be narrow and also shared by visitors on foot, with pushchairs and wheelchair or mobility scooter users. We thank you for your co-operation in this matter.

We ask dog owners to keep dogs on leads on the path directly round the lake and outlet channel, please watch out for ducks and other wildlife which have been enjoying resting on the paths during this quiet period. Dogs are allowed off lead in the rest of the park but we ask you keep them under close control as birds may be nesting on the ground during this time.

Further information and links to Government advice can be found here on the Public Rights of Way Page.

Please have a safe and enjoyable visit.
