Country parks


Come and visit our country parks. They are fantastic places to come for a walk, have a picnic, watch wildlife and enjoy the fresh air.

From 29 March, government guidance allows you to meet outdoors, in our parks, in groups of six or two households. This is in addition to outdoor exercise, which is already permitted.

You should continue to stay local wherever possible, but you can travel a short distance within your area if necessary. Remember you still need to socially distance within your group of six or two households.

  • Hardwick Park. This site is fully accessible.
  • Pow Hill, north of Edmundbyers. There is one easy access route.
  • Waldridge Fell, near Chester-le-Street. There are two easy access routes.

There are designated barbecue areas at both Hardwick Park and Wharton Park. Unauthorised fires and barbecues are not permitted on any other of our countryside sites.
