Parks and Gardens: Suburbs (East Nottingham)
Colwick Country Park
Mile End Road, Colwick, Nottingham. NG4 2DW
Colwick Country Park is on the outskirts of Nottingham and is a large diverse area of water, woodland and meadows. It provides the perfect backdrop for a variety of wildlife and recreational activities, including angling, sailing, walking and jogging.
The park is accessible via public transport and is well placed just off one of the region's key cycle routes. The majority of paths are dedicated as Public Bridleways, making a horse-ride or cycle around the park a real must and at the heart lies the excellent adventure centre which runs a range of land and water based activities to keep the more energetic audiences entertained.
Colwick Country Park, the house and parkland can be traced back to before 1362 where the ownership of the hall had passed through a number of families including the infamous Byrons and Musters. The current house dates from the late 18th century although there have been various modifications to the building and the design over the years.
