Distance: 2 miles (3km)

Explore over 200 acres of cycling and walking trails in this popular country park near Nottingham. In the park you will find wildflower meadows, grassland, conservation and landscaped areas. There is also a 2 hectare lake where you can see mute swans, great crested grebes and various duck species.

You are next door the the famous Great Central Railway and you can walk into the site from the country park. You can also stand on the railway bridge and watch the trains when the Railway is in operation.
