Car Park Charge Withdrawal
To our highly valued visitors and friends of Paradise Wildlife Park, as many of you may know, approximately 4 months ago we put in place a full day parking charge of £3. It was free of charge to season ticket and blue badge holders.
Our local authority, East Herts Council, insisted that we met all of the conditions when we were granted planning permission, if not, then they would enforce a closure of the car park, which in turn, would have created massive problems for PWP.
Over a 12 month period we carried out and met all of the conditions that East Herts Council asked of us but the overall cost was is in excess of £1million. To help the park cover this cost, we felt that a reasonable charge for parking would be acceptable.
In reality, we are a Family run business and we pride ourselves on excellent customer service, so due to the feedback from some of our visitors and the ongoing complaints with regards to having to pay for parking, we have made the decision to withdraw the parking charges.
As a team, we all felt that our visitors thoughts and views must come first so as from 22nd October, parking charges will cease.
