Welcome to Parks and Open Spaces
Nature Reserve Car Parks
Following Government Guidance the Council has decided to close off all of its car parks at its Parks and Nature Reserves. This is in an attempt to deter people congregating in the same space where social distancing may not be possible.
Play areas and Toilets
Council owned Play areas and toilet facilities are now closed to the public until further notice.
There are over 1,000 Hectares of parks, open spaces, sports grounds, nature conservation areas and play areas in Cannock Chase District, not to mention the 1,214 Hectares Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty known as Cannock Chase.
