The funds raised from parking are a vital source of income for the on-going maintenance of the site.

You can pay by app using your smart phone, with a credit or debit card, or good old fashioned coins at the machines located outside the Visitor Centre and in the woodlands car park just before you leave, or within 48 hours of your visit via the Park with ease website.

Parking charges are vital to fund the continued management of Queenswood. All money raised through the parking charges is spent on site including on: staff, buildings, utilities and toilet facilities, path maintenance, woodland management and tree safety, playground maintenance and more.
