About this walk

Find your way around Rushmere Country Park's 400 acres of stunning woodland, heathland and meadows for all ages to enjoy.

Responsible dog owners are welcome to walk their dogs at Rushmere Country Park within designated areas - both on and off the lead. For the safety of everyone visitors must abide by our rules regarding our on and off lead areas and pick up after their dog.

Since the park was opened in 2011 we have developed a zoned approach to the site that provides areas where visitors have access and other largely conservation areas where visitors are not allowed. Most importantly there are some areas where dogs must be kept On Leads - these tend to be the busier parts of the park. More details can be found on the website.

Professional dog walkers need to apply for a permit to conduct their business within this land.

Main entrance car park at Rushmere Country Park OPEN 9am - 5.30pm* (last entry 5pm), limited parking also available at Stockgrove car park 9am - 5.30pm (last entry 5pm).

Parking £3 on exit

    Absolutely lovely place, lots to see and do definitely a walk for the whole family. Plenty of bins and parking is very busy.

    Lovely walk where you can take detours to move away from people to help with social distancing.
