“Lovely Park - great for kids and dogs”
Review of Whitworth Park

Whitworth Park
Attraction details
Reviewed March 26, 2014

Whitworth Park is by far the best park in the Matlock area. It is a lovely park with duck ponds (and friendly ducks!), plenty of play equipment and a great cafe serving homemade food. It has large open spaces so lots of space for kids and dogs. Always feels safe and friendly and is very clean. The perfect place to spend time with the family.

Now the cafe has been done up it makes this park an excellent place to visit! Nice and quiet with plently of space for the kids to run off some energy, ducks to feed and a park to play! What more could you want on a sunny afternoon x

Being a derbyshire lad I get to visit Whitwoth Park quite often. The colours of the trees are particularly colourful at this time of the year. The former boating lake as now been restored into a wildlife haven having been devoid of water for many a year. The Terrace Tea Shop as come to life under a new chef with a full menu throughout the day, everyday. A lovely place to spend a while recharging the batteries.

A hidden gem that we discovered on holiday, Whitworth Park is beautiful and well maintained. Vast expanses of luscious green grass, surrounded by blossoming shrubs. There are a couple of small lakes, we even saw a heron on our visit.
There are lots of benches dotted around so you can take the time to relax and admire the tranquillity.
A great place to walk the dogs.

Having moved to Derbyshire from London 2 years ago, we are delighted to have such a beautiful, peaceful and unspoilt park on our doorstep. Another big plus is the easy and free parking facility. A beautiful lake, lovely far reaching views and ample seating is much appreciated. Many local events and entertainment held here but I would say there is room for improvement with the play area facilities as they are quite limited and not very exciting for ages 5-10. Much ore could be done to improve this facility as the park is not short on space. The other area is the terrace cafe which is often closed and quite sad in appearance.
