  • If you keep your expectations fairly low you will enjoy a pleasant walk around the restored old colliery tip. A huge improvement on what was previously an eyesore and can only get better with time. A ...  read more »
  • i agree the car park is small it needs a cafeteria with a view from the edge looking towards the vale of belvoir over cotgrave and tollerton nottinghamshire plus it needs toilet facilities
  • Great too walk or run round but be warned very hilly but watch out for snails we saved 18 tonight
  • Pathways are broad and easy to walk along. (No muddy grooves to negotiate). I enjoyed spotting the different birds that are in the park and look forward to seeing other wildlife as the park matures. I am not a dog owner myself but I think it could do with some more dog waste bins along the paths, as I spotted dog mess bags slung in trees!! A couple of public toilets would be useful.
  • Fantastic place. Nice wide tracks for cyclists and families alike. Could do with some public toilets. Will look spectacular when nature takes control. Though I was disappointed with dog owners. Dog mess on the footpaths and filled dog waste bags in bushes and trees. A few dogs off leads that seemed uncontrollable by their owners. If we all respect the area it will be a place to be proud of for generations to come.
  • A lot of potential and will be back as we only live down the road in Gedling. Have to say we were disappointed by the tiny car-park off Lambley Lane. There might be space for 40 cars, or so but with no lane markings the car-park was full with 4 foot gaps between the Bmw's and Audi's. Easily space for 5-10 more cars. So we were directed to Lambley Rec carpark off Spring lane, a 700m walk from the Country Park. We had to lift our pushchair over several stiles (who knows what a wheelchair user is supposed to do). We had a nice walk and enjoyed ourselves but a lack of forethought regarding accessibility might lead to some annoyed people during the summer.
