Country Parks and Ranger Service

The main aim of the Ranger Service is to develop, enhance and protect our countryside and urban sites within Cheshire East, while encouraging and promoting the proper use of the Council’s outdoor recreational facilities.

These web pages are designed to give you an overview of the many sites you can visit, and the events and activities we have scheduled for the year ahead across Cheshire East.
