Rushmere Country Park


Winter Opening hours are normally in operation OPEN 9am-5pm. The Stockgrove entrance opens by 9.30am. 

Rushmere Country Park will be CLOSED on Christmas and Boxing Day with no access to car parks and facilities. The park is accessible on foot from a number of entry points at all times. We will re-open on Bank Holiday Monday 27th December at 9am main entrance (by 9.30am at the Stockgrove entrance).

Site Closures  

Adverse weather conditions such as snow and gales will result in closure for public safety

Our Ranger team monitors the Met Office weather warning system for weather conditions and will take any reasonable action to close sites to the public when the following make conditions hazardous:

  • Wind gust speeds exceed 42 mph/Force 7-8.
  • Snow (5 cm and above) and Ice.

If advance weather reports indicate that these conditions will exceed the above criteria, a decision may be made to close entrances until conditions improve and a Ranger has inspected the site.

Please note that it is not feasible to close all entrances to all sites, but we shall, as soon as is practical, close main entrances or identify the increased risk via this web page and via our social media channels.
