Parks in Burntwood


We manage six parks across Burntwood - ranging from Burntwood Park that features a play area, picnic benches, nature walks and more, through Prince's Park which is featured in the Guinness Book of Records for being Britain's smallest park, and was created to commemorate the marriage of Albert Edward, Prince of Wales, and Princess Alexandra of Denmark.

Chasewater Country Park and its reservoir is now managed by Staffordshire County Council.

We regularly inspect local parks, but if you spot anything that needs urgent attention, please email the parks team or call 01543 308867.


As landowner, the council does not permit drone operations over parks and open spaces, due to the safety and sensitivity of crowded areas.  We may grant permission for professional drone operators for contractual filming who hold the relevant documentation, for more details please contact
