Cannock Chase and Chasewater will each benefit from close to £450,000 of investment in improving and developing facilities.
It comes after owners Staffordshire County Council coordinated funding from the EU’s European Agricultural Fund for Rural Development and committed money raised from car parking fees at parks.
Lichfield District Council is also contributing towards improvements at Chasewater Country Park, including new and improved children’s areas, path improvements, new trails and visitor centre enhancements.
The main investment will be in the two new play areas at Cannock Chase and Chasewater, which forms a large part of the £355,000 EU funding through the Rural Development Programme for England.
The country parks will also have new interpretation panels, multi-media displays inside Marquis Drive Visitor Centre and Chasewater Innovation Centre and a new walking route between the two.
Victoria Wilson, Staffordshire County Council’s cabinet member for communities and culture, said: “People will see a real difference at their country parks and I’m delighted Lichfield and Staffordshire Councils have worked together successfully to attract EU funding to improve facilities there.
Councillor Iain Eadie, Lichfield District council’s cabinet member for visitor economy & local plan, added: “We are all looking forward to seeing the works get under way.”
