BBQs Banned with Immediate Effect

On recommendation of the Northamptonshire fire department and following having to extinguish numerous fires at the park over the week due to discarded coals, Wicksteed Park have had to make the difficult decision to ban all BBQs on site effective immediately.

We understand this may be disappointing news to our guests however we take the safety of our visitors, staff and environment very seriously and we have been left with no other choice.

The Wicksteed Charitable Trust receives no regular external funding to help maintain the park as a truly unique, freely accessible public space. You can help to preserve the park for future generations by making donations. All money raised is used to help maintain the park and its grounds.
