Keeping everyone safe

As per the latest government regulations, see our facilities available and extra measures we’re taking so you can enjoy your visit.

Thursday 28th January: The exit gate on Wollaton Road will be closed due to maintenance on the cattle grid. All visitors accessing by car will be requested to enter / exit via the entrance gate on Wollaton Road.

Live in Nottingham? We encourage everyone to walk or cycle to the park rather than by car, where possible, as this not only helps the environment, though keeps roads clear for the emergency services & keyworkers. All ways we can keep each other & the park safe.
