Directions & Contact Details

Thinking of visiting?

Rivacre Valley is within cycling distance of Ellesmere Port. The nearest railway station is Overpool (10-15 minutes walking). The main car park is on Rivacre Road, just off Junction 7 of the M53.

Rangers’ Office, Rivacre Valley,

Rivacre Road, Ellesmere Port,

CH66 1SS

(nearest house on Poole Hall Lane)

The site is open every day of the year. The car park is locked at 5pm but limited roadside parking is available just outside. Alternative parking for the wider country park is available at the St. Paul's Church / E. Port Golf Course entrance, Childer Thornton (see map below).


Although some of the anti-motorcycle gates may be inaccessible to larger wheelchairs, access for mobility and disabled use through the kissing gates is via the national RADAR key scheme. There is a sloping path suitable for wheelchairs towards the recently planted area near Woodacre Road.

Toilet facilities are restricted to when the Rangers'/Greenspace office is open.

We ask that users of the park are considerate of other users by sharing the paths. Adult bikes should be confined to the designated single path which is part of the green loop and is multi-use.

There are some steep paths and some areas are prone to occasional flooding in times of heavy rainfall.
