Certificate of Excellence

Attraction details
Fee: No
Recommended length of visit: 2-3 hours
Owner description: Set in the beautiful countryside about half a mile south of Ruddington, Rushcliffe Country Park is an ideal place to get away from it all. With a network of over 8 kilometres of footpaths, grassland, conservation and landscaped areas, the park is excellent for walking, jogging, cycling, spotting wildlife and exercising your dog. Bring your family and a picnic and encourage your children to let off steam in the extensive play area, which has around 20 pieces of modern equipment for children up to the age of 12. The play area includes a swing suitable for less able children (safety equipment is available on request) and part of the equipment is accessible to wheelchair users. For older children there's a skateboard midi half pipe, and a 4X/ BMX cycle track situated nearby. Access to the park is free. The County Park has a visitor’s car park and for just £1, you can park for your whole visit (up to a full day).

Our visit to Rushcliffe country park was with our son, and his young family, firstly parking was plentiful at just £1 per day. The park was clean with plenty of places for refreshments, drinks, toilets and a visitor centre. Lovely walks around lakes, woods with ducks, swans, wildlife and educational plaques around the park. A Old railway still in use running by the side, looked like it was being loving restored. Lovely play areas set for age groups 3 to 8, and 9 to 14 year old. Plenty of picnic areas around with benches and tables. Great park for walks, running, cycling, picnicking or just enjoying the area.

A lovely park with lots for everyone - a little gym area, a lake to walk round with lots of nature, a play area etc - and it stuck me how many different species of trees, plants and animals there were. Really enjoyed it and would like to return.

having returned to Ruddington for the first time in years, to see the park and its offer was great. A brilliant play area serviced with food and drink outlets, my son would have stayed all day. We explored the park on a hot day and really enjoyed the changes.

This is a big expanse of land on the south side of Ruddington which is south of Nottingham on the A60. It has a good playground for kids of all ages. A circuit of the park maybe takes 90 minutes to walk. An interesting lake with reed beds and (somewhat worn) noticeboards identifying wildfowl. Some attempts at encouraging diverse flora & fauna with land left fallow etc. Undulating land- not exactly scenic. The park is adjacent to a local preserved steam railway sidings, and on the hot day I was there you could really smell the fumes from the coal? and diesel? their engines burn- not sure that is very healthy?
