Rushmere Country Park

**COVID-19 Update - The park is operating to Government Guidelines. More information on how the pandemic has impacted the park available here.**

    We have ample parking accessed via the main Rushmere entrance in Linslade Road, including designated disabled parking closest to the visitor centre and an area for horse boxes (currently weekdays only).

    The Stockgrove entrance via Brickhill Road provides limited parking.

    There's a £3 exit fee per vehicle - card and cash payment facilities are only available at the main Rushmere entrance, whereas payment at the Stockgrove entrance is cash only.

    Annual Greensand Parking Pass

    If you're a regular visitor to the park, buying an annual Greensand Parking Pass will save you money - and if you choose the Gift Aid option you can support the work we do even more! The annual Greensand Parking Pass is available for just £60 or you can support the site further by choosing the donate and gift aid option for £66 - this equates to just £5 per month (or £1.15per week).

    Changes to parking charges on the way

    Over the coming months (hopefully mid May) we will seek to implement parking improvements which will transition our parking system from a pay on exit, to a faster more responsive automatic number plate recognition (ANPR) system, with new tiered parking charge as follows:

    Time required


    Up to 20 mins (pick up/drop off)


    20 mins - 1 hour


    1hour - 3 hours


    Over 3 hours


    Annual Greensand Parking Pass (unlimited access)


    £66.00 Gift Aid

    This we hope will improve the site's overall capacity and flow of visitors in and out of the park and will better relate to visitors' needs providing options for short, mid and long term stays.

    Large groups who come to the park for self-led visits will be charged £25 for parking a minibus and £50 for a coach - please see Visitor Services.
