Open from dawn until dusk, the park features safe and accessible walking routes for families with young children and designated paths for dog walkers, cyclists and horse riders.
If you fancy a bite to eat, we have the caf which is open throughout the week (10am to 4pm) during the summer and Tuesday to Sunday (10am to 4pm) during the winter. You are also welcome to bring your own food and use the picnic area, but please remember to leave the area as you found it.
Most visitors are drawn by Tehidys natural beauty and Cornwall Council manages the park in a way that allows wildlife to thrive without too much disturbance. You are free to explore any part of the park, all we ask is that you show respect for the wildlife, including the plants and trees.
Well behaved pets kept under control are welcome and signs make it clear where dogs are permitted. Dogs are not allowed in the wildlife areas around the lakes, but there are plenty of other routes for four-legged friends to explore.
There are several entrances to the park, with three main car parks - North Cliffs, South Drive and East Lodge. South Drive is the most popular area and close to the lakes which are home to a variety of ducks, swans, fish, eels, birds and dragonflies. Head to North Cliffs for the spring time bluebell display and exotic tree species such as the huge monkey puzzle and beautiful Japanese maples. East Drive has the beautiful pine walk and is home to some of the oldest trees in the wood.
