Alvaston Park in Derby

Alvaston Park is situated in the south of the city, about two miles from the city centre. It lies adjacent to the river Derwent and from here you can walk or cycle along the riverside path- north west to the city centre or south east to Elvaston Country Park. There is also a recreational route along the former Derby Canal which leads to the river Trent at Swarkestone.

The park has a recreational area where football is played, a childrens playground which contains a range of play equipment, a BMX track and a lake.

A tree trail consisting of both native and exotic species, can be followed around Alvaston park. It comprises both newly planted and established trees. A leaflet giving details of the trail can be obtained from the Council House or the Tourist Information Centre on Derby Market Place.

Vehicle access to the car park is via Meadows Lane, off the A6.
