    Been to Alvaston park a couple of times. Lots of walking space! There is also a pond with lots of ducks and swans and I don't really like ducks so I was ducking and dodging lol but it is an okay place...  more »

    Alvaston Park has some great facilities, much to the hard work of the local "Friends of Alvaston Park" group. The playground is well maintained, clean and fenced so little ones can play safely includi...  more »

  • This is a lovely park. The cafe is awesome and the lake is lovely. Car park is quite large too. Buy some bird food from the cafe to feed the ducks, swans and coots. There's a good play area for kids and the skate park too.
  • Beautiful park in the summer time. Lots of things to do for kids and adults alike. The water seems quite dirty and looks like it has been in need of a good clean for a long time. Always fun to go and feed the ducks and take a walk around the grounds. When events on it can be quite busy but due to how much green area there is, it is almost certain you can find a decent spot for a picnic.
  • Car parking, bmx track, cafe, small lake, cycle paths and lovely walks which connect through derby. Big fields to walk the dogs: but avoid the footy games at the weekend: it gets busy. The 'Alvaston Pirates' captain their remote control boats on the water which is great to see. There are swans and ducks and various wildlife around the water!
  • Great local park to walk your dog or for kids to play in play park. Had skate a bike park and outdoor Adidas gym for all to use. Duck/coot/swan/goose in pond. Football fields for weekend kick about. Runs along river. Toilets and cafe to boot.
  • Alot of duck and other animals poo around as beautiful as the wildlife are there should definitely be some sort of wash down procedure for footpath around lake aswell as litter our wheelchair and shoes were covered by the time we had walked around once.
