Parking charges are being introduced at the Outwoods in Loughborough from May 29, 2017.
The award-winning park is managed by Charnwood Borough Council which is introducing the charges.
Visitors will pay £1 a day at the pay and display machines or regular visitors can purchase a year-long pass for £40 which covers two vehicles.
Matt Bradford, head of cleansing and open spaces at the council, said: “The Outwoods is a tremendous place to visit and we want to make sure it not only stays that way, but gets even better.
“Therefore we need to look at ways of generating extra revenue as the Council does not have limitless resources. We believe the parking charge is reasonable and for regular visitors, the season pass is good value.
“We hope people will continue to enjoy everything the Outwoods has to offer.”
The Outwoods has retained the Green Flag Award for the past eight years. The scheme, run by Keep Britain Tidy, recognises and rewards well-managed parks and green spaces in the UK.
