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

We hired a rowing boat for 3adults 1child £10 plus £3 deposit for 1 hour. First problem was the lake is about a good 13 inch lower than normal.so you have to risk serious injury. 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.

Lovely walks around the lake. There is often some great theatre or event on at the Lakeside. Good cafe. Decent toilets. Play area good. We come here a lot.

Love going to highfields especially to run round the lake and in the University Park as it is scenic and very relaxing. The cafe is a lovely spot in front of the lake, bright, airy, the food is very basic...sandwiches, cakes, coffee and tea. It will not be a culinary experience just a quick stop gap and top up...I speak... More

Beautiful lakeside walks, boating, ideal for picnics & dog walking. Mainly well maintained paths, most suitable for wheelchairs too. Plenty of trees, bushes, rhododendrons, and greenery. Ducks, Geese, Squirrels. But the Café at the East End is quite expensive, and personally I think the Sandwiches (pre-packed) are pretty appalling. They may be 100% recycled - or is that just the...
