What you'll find there
Edenbrook is a dog friendly country park with plenty of surfaced paths and open space. It is popular with joggers and cyclists too. Features include a network of ditches, culverts and ponds designed to take floodwater away from the adjacent houses.
The large amount of standing water attracts a wealth of waders and ducks especially in winter. In spring and summer watch dragonflies flying low over the water and butterflies across beautiful meadows of wildflowers and grasses. If you’re lucky you might see a Common Lizard or a Grass Snake. In the winter, paths may be closed owing to flooding after heavy rain. This may reduce access – check out our social media pages for updates or below in the “News and updates” section.
Skylarks and other ground-nesting birds' nest on the ground between March and mid-September.
Please keep your dogs under control to help protect them during this time.

Edenbrook Active Area
Note: Anyone using the facilities at Edenbrook Country Park and the Active Area, and any other public open space, must adhere to the current Government’s COVID-19 rules and guidelines.
Hart District Council worked with specialist mountain bike and BMX track builders Architrail to expand the facilities in the Active Area of Edenbrook Country Park.
Read our FAQs below for more information:
Why have we expanding the Active Area?
One of our key strategies is supporting and encouraging a healthy community by delivering infrastructure that encourages people to walk and cycle. These activities are proven to improve physical and mental health and social wellbeing. The new track will help towards meeting this goal.
Why is this happening in this part of the Country Park?
Historically there was an old motor-cross track in this area. The naturally sandy soils were churned up and difficult to make use of without major works. Berkeley Homes agreed to help with this as part of the planning agreement providing much needed space for a community garden and an active area where people can challenge their riding abilities and improve their health and fitness.
What is a Push-up Path?
A push-up path has been designed to bring riders from the car park area to the rest area. The finish points of both trails also merge at the bottom of the push-up path to give riders easy access back to the rest area as well as the car park. What equipment will I need to be able to ride on the track?
The track is suitable for mountain and BMX bikes only. These should be well-maintained and in good condition. Riders must, at all times, wear a suitable helmet that fits properly. Gloves, knee, and elbow pads are also advised.
Who has right of way?
Riders on the trails in front of you have right of way. Do not attempt to switch from one trail to the other. For your own and the safety of others stay on the trail that you started on. Always respect other trail users and walkers. Riders or walkers coming up the push path to the active area have the right of way.
How will I find out further information about the tracks?
A conditions of use sign is available on site in the rest area.
