Family fun in the great outdoors at Queen Elizabeth Country Park.
From the top of Butser Hill, the highest point on the South Downs, down to the Visitor Centre with it's shop and cafe, the park makes for a great day out.
Escape the city and experience stars in the night sky like never before when visiting QECP this winter. Butser hill offers an oasis of dark for astromonomers in the South East. Being the highest observing point in Hampshire, it offers a great place to view the night sky!
With over 20 miles of trails there are plenty of walking routes to choose from, whether your looking for a short stroll or a longer ramble.
Take to the trails and explore the Queen Elizabeth Country park on two wheels.
Relax at the café and enjoy home-made, locally sourced food, nutritious meals, snacks and cakes, coffee and tea.
Older children will love the adventure trail, and the younger ones with have great fun running around the animal themed tots play area.

There are plenty of perfect picnic spots within the park and barbecues can be hired that cater for up to 12 people.
The Visitor Centre shop sells a wide range of local produce including the park's own organic lamb.
With the Easter Egg Roll, Vintage Car Show, Butserfest, Halloween, Santa's Grotto and many more . . . you will need to keep an eye on the website or pick up a copy of 'Park Pages' on site.

I think you need to make it clear on your web site when sheep are on the hill as this will determine whether people visit to walk their dog due to the 70 fine if your dog is caught off the lead. I do not want to drive up there just to find out this information and drive back if sheep are there.
Lovely park especially the views from Butser however they could maintain some grass land So people can sunbathe and have picnics with a view the grass is so high children find it hard to run around and be free

I use the park every day to walk my dogs. It is a lovely place to walk very peaceful. I think there needs to be more bins for dog waste at each car park entrance. It's not pleasant to see dog bags on the floor and not great to carry round on an hours walk.
