How to find us
Building starts in Spring 2021
The main building will be 5,400m² and include a large coffee shop with panoramic views over the plant display areas and country park beyond. Catering will be an important part of the garden centre and a separate children’s play area and ice cream bar is planned.
Alver Valley Country Park’s attractions offer a great visitor experience for nature lovers, walkers and cyclists in a countryside setting that is only a stone’s throw away from the popular Solent coastline. The garden centre will become a central part of the visitor experience.
The location is enhanced by other attractions adjoining the garden centre site. The 17th Century Living History Village attracts visitors and has hosted high profile productions such as Doctor Who and Blue Peter. The “Wildgrounds” Site of Special Scientific interest enhances the Country Park’s reputation as a centre for nature and conservation.
