  • Beautiful park between Heanor and Shipley but trails stretch as far as Long Eaton. The park boasts two fishing lakes as well as a cafe and visitor centre to get you're refreshments as well as at least 15 trails each one connecting and can take a good few hours to walk them all. It also has three play parks for the kids and benches spotted around all the main paths of the park. You can also go to see the old Shipley Hall foundations as well as walk around the surrounding gardens that are there towards the top of the hill with a tea rooms in a old stone house at the base with indoor and outdoor seating. Really a great place for families or just lovers of nature.
  • A great place to walk, cycle, jog or just explore at your leisure. We have spent many hours here over the years as our children were growing up and still enjoy a walk around. However, we don't visit as often these days due to the car park charges and usually park on the road nearby to avoid having to pay. Our biggest issue though has always been that the toilets close early throughout the year so a walk after work can be an issue of you don't have a strong bladder.
  • A wonderful.space to walk, cycle, run and let off some steam! Delicious food in coffee shop just such a shame there aren't more people serving and it taking SO long to get served every time we visit!!! Also a shame that thoughtless people scatter their rubbish and litter around the park when there are plenty of bins to put it in!!! Full marks to the wardens and volunteers for their upkeep of the park for the enjoyment of everyone!
  • A good sized Park with lots to do. Access to the Park is free, but as always if you drive there is a fee to park in the closest car park. Although you can park on the road for free. The park itself has plenty to keep kids and grown ups entertained in any season. Walking, cycling, horse riding, bird watching, angling, picnicking, kite flying, jogging, wayfaring, photography are all possible. There is also a great little cafe called the Nutbrook coffee shop which has an excellent range of food and drinks.
  • ParkRun course is hilly but fun. Parking is available but costs £1. Lots of spaces available. You can park for free on the industrial estate roads as you approach the car park.
