Mill Park Reserve is Open

Following the recent work on our boardwalk, Mill Park Reserve is open again for individuals, households or groups of up to 6 people.

Please note that the government says: “”When meeting with people you don’t live with (or have formed a support bubble with) you can socialise in groups of up to 6. You should continue to maintain social distancing with anyone you do not live with.”

S.O.Z! Save our Zip Wire!

As you most probably know, our popular zip wire has been disabled, following a RoSPA report. We need to replace the existing wooden frame before the zip wire can be restored to working order.

This will most probably cost in the region of £10,000, if not more. CAN YOU HELP?

We need all the help we can get from our supporters, so we have set up a JustGiving page. If you would like to donate, please visit

Without your support, Cotton End Park will not flourish and continue to provide a haven for families and wildlife.
