Flintshire County Council is asking the community to help relieve parking pressures on Wepre Park during busy periods.

Visitor numbers to the park have significantly increased over the past 5 years and the council says that designated parking areas and overflow car parking become under pressure during the summer.

The council is asking visitors to either consider walking or cycling to the park or for those driving to use the Pay and Display Car Park at the bottom of Wepre Drive, about half a mile away.

The Council says it is looking at short, medium and long term options to manage parking pressures at Wepre Country Park in the future for the benefit of local residents and visitors.

Cllr. Carolyn Thomas said;

“Wepre Country Park is a much-loved and important place for the local community and beyond and it is wonderful that so many people and user groups enjoy Wepre Country Park.

We would ask that if the car parks are full please consider local residents and road safety by parking responsibly in the Pay and Display Car Park at the bottom of Wepre Drive, about half a mile away or consider walking or cycling.”

Recent research has shown the value of green spaces to people’s health and well-being, we want people to be able to enjoy these benefits, but without having a negative impact on others.”
