We love summer in Highfields:) Our children love the park and they love climbing the trees here. Everybody is happy because we also enjoy walking round the lake . Lovely atmosphere.

Revisiting a childhood attraction we took the grandchildren(11yrs and 13 yrs) to the boating lake at Highfields. Lengthy traffic diversion took us through the beautiful University grounds but was well signposted. We had such a brilliant time, lots of laughter as we manoeuvred the rowing boat around the lake and the grandchildren paddled their canoe around in circles. We all... More

This is a small but perfectly formed park. There is a moderate size play park by the FREE car park and a decent patch of grass to play a bit of football on. There is also a cafe that serves cake, coffee and ice-creams with clean and well-kept toilets to use. The walk around the lake will take no longer... More

Great fun, but the lake is really really dirty. The staff refused to give me my deposit back, despite having come back on time and not having damaged the boat, just because I had dropped my receipt in the lake. Basically stole 6 quid off me.

Nothing like a good walk around Highfields. Scenery is beautiful and then in the Summer hire a row boat or canoe or a trip on the Maid Marian (I think they were renovating her). Lovely café and park for the children - been visiting this place for years

Just to get in the boat .it is even more difficult to get out again.then to my surprise I discover the boat I was given... More

We love coming here as it's within walking distance from Beeston for us and has a lot to offer. We enjoy the walk through the University grounds and round the lake as there's lots to amuse children. The park itself is well looked after and well visited and has a good range of play equipment. It's nice to have the... More

Highfields which is adjacent to Nottingham University is ideal for all ages. The boating lake & putting greens are a must. Prices are very reasonable and worth every penny. The walks are excellent and parking is FREE.
