Improving Queen Elizabeth Country Park

Nov 7 2017


Hello and welcome to our first park blog post.

Over the coming months we'll be sharing with you all the exciting changes we have planned as part of a £2 million investment in the park. We'll be letting you know about the latest news and progress on these improvements. You may have already noticed some changes so let's start with what's happening now.

Plans for the new assault course at Queen Elizabeth Country Park

Up the hill at Juniper car park, the Forts and Fleets project is well under way. For those new to this project, we're working with the armed forces to bring military and civilian communities closer together through a shared love of nature and the great outdoors. Armed Forces Covenant Funding is helping us improve the park with a new play area, assault course, community space and dog activity trail. These will be ready for the New Year.

Design for Queen Elizabeth Country Park's new visitor centre

Meanwhile back in the visitor centre we’re showing our new plans for the centre. This includes making the restaurant larger, moving visitor reception, a flexible hall space and landscaping the front and rear of the building.

Alongside the proposed layout there are also some images and concept designs of what the centre may look like. These will be in the theatre throughout November where you can let us know what you think or you can email

So as you can see, a busy and exciting year ahead for us all!
