Visitors to Nene Park in Peterborough will have to pay daily car parking charges when new prices are introduced in March.
The daily charges at the 500-acre country park in Ham Lane, off Oundle Road, will be introduced on March 7, replace the current arrangement which sees a car parking charge of £4 apply at weekends and bank holidays from March until the end of October, between the hours of 10am and 4pm .
In September 2015, the Trust announced its intention to extend car parking charges in both Ferry Meadows and Orton Meadows to support continued development of the Park. The Trust is today announcing that the revised charges will officially come into effect from 7 March 2016.
At the same time, the Trust is also announcing the availability of a new Ferry Meadows Parking Membership at £60 per year.
Teresa Wood, Head of Visitors Services at Nene Park Trust, commented: “For a lot of our visitors, the Parking Membership represents fantastic value for money. For those who visit Ferry Meadows even just once a week, the membership works out at just £1.15 per visit.”
For people visiting Ferry Meadows in the summer between 8am-8pm and winter 8am-5pm, visitors parking their car will have to pay £1.50 for stays under one hour, £2 for visits between one hour and 90 minutes, £2.50 for stays between 90 minutes and two hours. The cost will continue to rise to £5 for stays lasting at least four hours.
