Walkers complaining about lack of access to a Legoland Windsor-owned car park have got the 'wrong end of the stick', according to the theme park.
Legoland, based in Winkfield Road, revealed plans to repair trees and hedges to protect the boundary of the car park, at a meeting with residents on Wednesday.
But it said it will continue to allow people to walk their dogs on the site of the car park, located near the top of St Leonards Hill, on a case-by-case basis as a 'gesture of good will'.
Windsor resident Victoria Bruce tweeted she'd heard Legoland was 'fencing off' the site which local residents use for 'recreation'.
But Legoland head of PR Liz Edwards said it was a 'misunderstanding'.
She said: "The car park is closed off because it's private land, if someone comes into your front garden you're going to tell them to get off.
"Some residents have got the wrong end of the stick, nothing is changing and walkers will still be able to use the bridleway but we just want to make sure our property is secure."
