Stanwick Lakes is a popular destination, especially on bank holiday weekends where lots of families flock to enjoy the lakes, playground and facilities.
It often gets so busy that the car park gets full and leaves people parking in illegal or dangerous places.
Stanwick Lakes have issued the following message via their Social Media account:
“We look forward to seeing you at Stanwick Lakes this Bank Holiday weekend.
If you should happen to come at a time when we are very busy and the site is full, please be aware that parking on the A45 is illegal and could result in your car being removed and impounded by the Highways Agency.
They have advised us that they will be patrolling the area – don’t let your day be spoiled in this way.
Please also be considerate to our neighbouring community, and don’t park in Stanwick village.
When our car parks are full, our site has reached capacity. Thank you”
