Barrier System Gets Upgrade
We will be having a major upgrade to our car parking facilities in May, with a new barrier system that uses automatic number plate recognition (ANPR) technology. This means that paper tickets and membership cards will be a thing of the past. We do, however, need members to provide their vehicle registration numbers so that the system recognises their number plate and allows them to enter and exit the site seamlessly each time they visit. Non-members will need to enter their registration number and pay at the pay station before departing the site. We are expecting the new barrier system to be up and running by 24th May 2021.
This upgrade to our parking facilities represents a significant capital investment by Rockingham Forest Trust, but since reopening last summer, we have recognised the increase in the number of visitors wishing to pay for their parking by card. The new pay terminals will both accept card payments but cash payments will also still be possible. We very much hope the upgrade will enhance our visitors’ experience at Stanwick Lakes in the future.
A Word About Our Charges
What you pay when you drive in is not really just a ‘car park charge’, it’s an admission charge, and represents great value. Just a few pounds for as many people as you can fit in your car gives you access to a wide range of facilities, from seven and a half miles of surfaced paths, to three different adventure play areas, a fitness hub, bird hides and sculpture and heritage trails.
