I walk my dog every day at the park and wanted to buy the annual pass,I see there are problems getting the pass so does that mean I have to pay 1.50 every day until you have sorted out this problem

No. There was a delay in getting permamant passes printed but this has now been rectified. If you order a pass online a temporary pass will be emailed to you straight away and then a permanant one will follow in the post. Alternatively, passes can also be purchased from our cafe.

Your message on front page says the "Discovery Pass" people have gone into liquidation. How do we now get our yearly pass and not have to pay the 1.50 every day we visit your park?

found the park a few weeks ago . Brilliant for the dogs and so nice to find somewhere to take dogs safely and free . Until now . So now have to pay 1.50 a day to walk dogs. Tryed getting a parking pass on line but cant find how to do this. I guess the pass give me free parking for a year ? Not happy to pay when always been free . Pay enough taxes as it is. But dogs still love it . How do i get pass please
