Come along and enjoy one of the top play areas in the borough, it incorporates the park's mining heritage with a rustic mining tower slide, mining train and old pit grasslands. The park has a toddler area, complete with swings, slides and a wheelchair accessible roundabout.
We've laid out a series of trails to allow you to get round the park easily. They are graded for length and difficulty so you can take anything from a quick stroll with a pushchair to a strenuous workout.
Top Hard (Red) - 2.8km long with some steep inclines.
High Hazles (Blue) - 1.4km with gentle slopes suitable for wheelchair users.
Main Bright (Yellow) - 2.7km of mainly easy paths but with a sharp slope at one point.
Low Hazles (Green) - at 5.7km it's the longest route with several steep parts.
All routes are circular and are signposted at every junction.
The accessible High Hazles route also includes a nature trail for families to explore. The trail starts just after the children’s play area and includes eight animals which are local to Gedling Country Park. To complete the trail you will need a booklet and a crayon, which you can find in the café for 20p. The leaflet tells you all about the wildlife at the park and other things that you can look out for during your visit.
Changing Places Facility
The park boasts a Changing Places facility which includes height adjustable changing benches, a tracking hoist system, space for disabled people and carers, a central toilet and a non-slip floor. Access to the facilities is available with a radar key.
This car park is popular so if it is full and you choose to park on the road please park carefully, be mindful of other road users and considerate towards local residents.
The route into the park from the recreation ground involves crossing stiles so people with mobility problems or pushchairs should use the Spring Lane car park.
Nottingham City Transport run buses that go close to the two main entrances of the park.
