Dedicated car park opens for Romsey nature reserve

Fishlake Meadows nature reserve now has a dedicated car park

Fishlake Meadows nature reserve now has a dedicated car park, making it easier for visitors from further afield and those with accessibility needs to visit and enjoy the wildlife haven. The car park is accessed via the new Oxlease Meadow development, and will be open daily from 8am until 6pm.

Jo Armson, Reserve Officer at Hampshire & Isle of Wight Wildlife Trust said: “Given Fishlake Meadows’ well-earned reputation for wildlife, it’s no surprise that it’s been exceedingly popular with local people. We hope that by providing this extra parking, more people will be able to enjoy the site – especially those with accessibility needs.”

The car park is one of a number of upgrades and facilities that we've installed at Fishlake Meadows, including new paths, fencing and screens.

The car park is located at the end of the first left turning, after entering the new development. Its location is here.

The car park will be open daily, barring exceptional or unforeseen circumstances - such as urgent use for those managing the nature reserve.  Cars may not be left overnight, and the car park will be locked upon closing time.
