You do not need an appointment to visit Old Park Meadow. Many visitors come to enjoy the beauty of Old Park Meadow, take a stroll and enjoy seeing the plants and trees grow over time. Very occasionally we have to close for a few hours, this may be due to land management or the funeral of a public figure which can sometimes demand complete privacy.
If you do stop by for a visit, we recommend sensible footwear for your comfort and safety in enjoying the natural meadows and young woodland.
