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.

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.
