Covid safety measures


We’ve added a number of control measures to protect our visitors and team members:

Visitors should keep in mind the latest government guidelines for their visit.

While in enclosed spaces, including the Hall, shop, café and toilets, visitors are required to wear face coverings and socially distance for the safety of all visitors, team members & volunteers. Footfall is restricted inside buildings to help accommodate social distancing.

Hand sanitising stations are available in the toilets and around the sites at entrance to courtyard, café kiosks, and play areas etc, and we kindly ask that all visitors make use of to clean their hands regularly.

Approaching till points, we have marked spaces on the floor to help the flow of visitors. The courtyard is also monitored for footfall, with capacity measures in mind.

Any payments made on site are by card payment only. This includes car parking, café kiosk and external vendors on site.

Where appropriate, visitors can use the grass alongside the tarmac path, to enable passing on narrow paths.

All team members have received additional training to ensure they work safely, in line with Coronavirus procedures.

We are grateful to all visitors for keeping in mind the latest government guidelines for their visit.

Park & wildlife safety measures

Comfortable clothing & footwear is recommended at all times as the park can be muddy, particularly during rainy or icy weather and changeable seasons.

Where appropriate, cyclists, runners and active walkers are able to use the grass alongside the tarmac path, to ensure easy passing on narrow paths.

As deer may be territorial, all visitors should keep a safe distance from the deer, and keep dogs on leads at all times; and maintain a wide berth from wildlife.

We request that all visitors take litter home, where possible, as with increased demand at parks, this will help us keep the parks safe for all wildlife.

Drones are not permitted except by contractors commissioned by Nottingham City Council for a specific purpose, who satisfy stringent CAA criteria, have the correct insurances and operate under controlled conditions.

We have a ‘We’re Good to Go’ industry standard mark, awarded by Visit Britain, for following government guidelines in relation to Covid-19, ensuring social distancing can be maintained, cleanliness procedures are in place, and have necessary risk assessments also.

We continue to pay attention to the latest government guidelines and will keep you updated via our page.
