Nature lovers are set to benefit from improved accessibility at Cherry Orchard Jubilee Country Park, which now has a new car park and access road.

The beautiful 200 acre wildlife park can now be easily reached from a roundabout on Cherry Orchard Way, Rochford, and there is room for approximately 80 cars to park.

This was possible due to ‘section 106’ money made available as part of the development of the nearby Airport Business Park, which has enabled works to expand and re-surface the car park and create the new access road.

Portfolio Holder for the Environment, Cllr Arthur Williams, said: “This improved access to Cherry Orchard Jubilee Country Park has been made possible due to monies made available as part of the development of the nearby Airport Business Park. I’m delighted that the works have been completed in time for the Spring, when the lake, grassland and surrounding woodland are truly a breath-taking sight. 

“I hope these facilities encourage more dog walkers, families, and ramblers to explore this beautiful park, situated in the rolling countryside of the Roach Valley.”
