Park Safety

Bawsey Country Park is a wonderful place to visit and enjoy the outdoors. However, as with any outdoor space, there are potential hazards. By following a few simple rules, visitors can enjoy the park and keep themselves safe and the environment safe and beautiful.

NO FIRES OR BBQs PERMITTED

Bawsey Country Park is a large open space and, at certain times, the undergrowth can be very dry. Fires and BBQs pose a significant threat which is why we do not allow their use in the park and the removal of branches to make fires causes damage to the park. Please help us to keep the park safe and beautiful for everyone.
