“Lovely peaceful walk.”

Reviewed June 25, 2014 via mobile

I have been here several times and there are several walks of differing lengths. Very nice scenery and good for wildlife. So nice to go in the week as fewer people around. The cafe in visitors centre is also good. Really nice place to walk the dogs.

what a wonderful place here in Nottingham .I 'm always amazed at the work that goes on here. The cafe is fantastic, lovely food, well cooked and presented.
The information signs are always up to date and very informative
I recently enjoyed a lovely day with my grandson joining in the spring events such as bug hunts , bee trails and wood crafts. Parking is easy and only a £1.50 donation for a whole day. We love it.

We had a day at Attenborough with our local RSPB group. The sun was shining (not always the case I'm sure) and the birds were out in full force. 60+ species in one day!
The reserves were well cared for and well kept, the hides were clean and tidy and the the footpaths were wll maintained. Cake in the cafe was good too. What's not to like?
It seemed popular with local families who were out enjoying the sun.
I like the fact that there were activities for children and some of the notice boards had a braille transcription. Easy to find and well signed.

It was once gravel pits and now a beautiful nature reserve close to the Chilwell Retail Park. Walks that vary in length around several lake taking in the wild life. Many species of birds, ducks and geese can be seen on the walk or from one of the hides. Back at the centre you can take refreshments and they have built a new hide and nesting banks for sand martins. A great place for bird watching or for healthy walks or keeping fit. It's free although there is a fee for parking.

Saw the signs for the nature reserve and decided to take a look. as we were limited for time we didn't spend long here, but would have liked to time permitting. We did manage to have a quick look at the visitor centre and it was a very pleasant place to have a snack and a coffee. Given more time we would have taken a stroll around one of the lakes.
