There are no admission charges to Hadleigh Park and there is no charge to ride the trails, however parking charges do apply. Your parking charge covers the use of the entire venue.

Car Parking System and Charges

Our parking system is ‘Pay on Exit’. We have an ANPR camera at the barriers which picks up your car registration on entry. You are then free to enjoy your stay. When you choose to leave you simply go to 1 of the 2 machines in the main car park, enter your car registration and the screen will tell when you arrived and how much to pay. Once paid you have 15 mins to leave and the exit barrier will let you out automatically.

Parking is £1.50 an hour per vehicle. This is capped at £6 which will give you parking for the entire day. This is in line with all Essex Country Parks.

Parking can be paid for either by cash or debit/credit card. No change is given by our machines if paying by cash.

The car park has 400 spaces with an additional 12 disabled bays (also charged).
