Opening Times

Parkcycle is open all year but the daily opening times do vary by season and there are some days we are closed in Low Season and when there is a special event in the park.

The calendar below indicates the approximate opening times by season. Times can vary within this depending on the park's closing time and the weather.


Note: that the last one hour cycle hire is always at the latest around 60 minutes prior to the advertised closing time.

On the days we are open in low season Parkcycle may close early should the weather be inclement. If you are planning to arrive later in the day and the weather is poor please check the twitter news feed or call to check.

Note that the last one hour cycle hire is always at the latest around 90 minutes prior to the park's official closing time.
