  • BBQ's are not permitted in the park, as they pose a danger to the wild deer, and other 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. 

  • As we are in calving season, fawns may hide in long vegetation under the watchful eye of a protective mother. Therefore, avoid walking in long grassy areas or fields with long vegetation, and ensure your dog is on a lead when entering a field with deer or close to wildlife; giving a wide berth and to not approach them.

We hope that the park, grounds & facilities continue to offer enjoyment over the coming weeks for all those accessing them. Please find our sitemap available here.

Be assured for all facilities, we action risk assessments & training of all team members to ensure operation is in line with government guidelines.

For all postponed events, our customer service teams are working remotely and will be in touch with customers affected by these changes to facilitate how we can best help. Please do contact us if you have any arrangements you would like to discuss. We are unfortunately unable to update by phone at this time, though we endeavour to answer via email as soon as possible.

We are also working closely with suppliers, and events vendors to work through postponing any planned activity over the coming weeks, and we will continue to update you via this dedicated page when event activity can be rescheduled.

We continue to pay close attention to all government recommendations being updated through the Nottingham City Council page and will keep you updated via our page here, so please continue to check this page before each visit.
