Facilities & Useful Information

Beale Park is an outdoor wildlife park set within 30 acres of grounds. We want to make sure you have a fun and memorable visit and would recommend that you read the useful information below.


Sorry no dogs (except for trained assistance dogs, e.g. guide dogs) or other pets allowed inside Beale Park.

Scooters and Tricycles

We regret that due to health and safety reasons children’s scooters and tricycles are not permitted inside Beale Park.

What to Wear

The weather in Britain can be very unpredictable. We recommend you prepare for every outcome.

Most paths are tarmac and on level ground. However, if it has rained, or is due to rain, puddles can form quickly. There are also areas that will require you to walk on grass, which can be muddy.

In wet weather conditions, wearing wellington boots would be a good idea.

Baby Changing Rooms

We have dedicated changing rooms by the main entrance to the Park and also near to the Peacock Restaurant.

First Aid

First Aid assistance is available during opening hours. We have multiple trained first aid staff on site and two dedicated first aid rooms, one located by the Splash Pool and the other near to the Ticket Office.

Lost Property

Misplaced your property? It may have already been handed in and brought to the Administration Office. Alternatively call 01189 767480 after your visit and we will check our logs.

The Park endeavours to reunite lost items with their owner. However, we only keep lost property for a month – if not claimed within this time we will then donate the belongings to a local charity shop.

Lost Children

We recommend that you decide on an easy to find meeting point should your group or children become lost. Please approach any member of staff if you need assistance with lost children.

The Park Ticket Office is able to supply you with wristbands for your child/children, on arrival at Beale Park, if you so wish.

Park Map

Maps can be found at the main entrance and Gift Shop. You can also download one here.

Car Parking

The wildlife park has plenty of car parking spaces. There is no charge for parking. On busy days our overflow car parks will be open to help accommodate increased vehicle traffic.

Please remain vigilant and keep your children with you at all times when in the car park. It can be a very busy and dangerous place.

Beale Park is private property so no overnight parking or night fishing is allowed.

No barbecues or fires are permitted in the Park itself or its surrounding area.

Please take all litter home or use our litter and recycling facilities.

Wheelchair Friendly

Beale Park is accessible for wheelchair and buggy users and every effort is made to assist you in your trip. Most paths are tarmac and there is level or ramped access to most buildings.

Please contact us on 01189 767480 if you have any queries regarding your visit.

Facilities include: Disabled toilets and baby change facilities, wheelchair loan and a wheelchair carriage on the train (limited capacity).

Toilet Facilities

There are two sets of toilets located within the Park. These can be found near the main entrance and towards the middle of the Park, near to the Peacock Restaurant.

All children under the age of 16 must be accompanied by an adult and supervised at all times in the Park
