Where are we?

Set in the beautiful south Nottinghamshire countryside - about half a mile south of Ruddington - Rushcliffe Country Park is an ideal place to get away from it all. With a network of over 8 kilometres of footpaths, grassland, conservation and landscaped areas, the park is excellent for walking, jogging, cycling, spotting wildlife and exercising your dog.

Bring your family and a picnic and encourage your children to let off steam either by visiting the extensive play area, the magical Gibbie's Wood, or simply use the open spaces to fly a kite.
