Well known to many visitors as the site of the annual Nottingham Goose Fair, the Forest has recently undergone a £5.2m Lottery restoration. This includes the refurbishment and restoration of the pavilion with a new café and public toilets.

The site was one of the original parts of the 1845 Nottingham Inclosure Act which preserved eighty acres of Sherwood Forest for recreational use. In commemoration the Mayor of Nottingham planted a special Oak tree called the "Inclosure Oak" which can still be seen today at the Mansfield Road entrance. The Forest has also been home to many sports over the last 300 years including horse racing, cricket and football - the original home of Nottingham Forest FC.

In addition to hosting many other popular events, the Forest Recreation Ground also has a variety of recreation facilities which include a café, public toilets, play areas, multi activity pitches, football pitches, an outdoor gym and leisure walks.
