If you enjoy a pleasant walk , through the grounds of Nottingham University . Walk by the lake and have refreshments in the tea room . If you are lucky , you may catch something in the Lakeside Arts Centre .

Woodthorpe Grange has now been in the ownership of Nottingham City Council for over eighty years and is home to Nottingham City's Sport, Culture and Parks Service, the maintenance depot for the local area's ground maintenance team and the City's nursery section. Occupying about a quarter of the park space, the 18 hole course plays on a hill slope around... More

The park has a nice big lake and is fun to walk around. Whoever keeps the place tidy does a wonderful job. I rarely see any litter at all while walking round it. Unfortunately some of the paths need some serious repair. The main path along the bottom of the lake has a lot of holes in, and when it's... More

Picturesque park which you will never tire of when walking around the lake as there are different view's from all angle's and all are worth taking a while to enjoy. The walk around the lake is approximately 1.25 miles long and the path's are easy walking.

Often go here to take the kids and dogs for a walk, nice that I can grab a coffee too, although the Cafe is a bit expensive! Lovely place in the summer for families to take a picnic and has a decent sized park for the kids to play on.

A picturesque park to spend a few hours and lots of space and pretty sights to do some photography. Also climbing frames for children.

Living not far from this park is a real bonus. The boating lake, kids park and lakeside paths make for a great family day out. The Lakeview Arts Centre building often houses some interesting presentations and theatre productions. The cafe is great, its nice to sit outside watching the lake or pack a picnic and go enjoy the open spaces.... More
