Shipley Country Park

Shipley Country Park

Shipley Country Park is near Derby and Nottingham and offers 700 acres of attractive and varied landscape.

The park has earned the Green Flag Award for the quality of its green spaces every year since 2008. The Green Flag Award is the national standard for parks and green spaces in England and Wales.

In 2011 the park also achieved Country Park Accreditation from Natural England for its facilities and services.


Whatever the season, there is always lots to see and do in the park - walking, cycling, horse riding, bird watching, angling, picnicking, kite flying, jogging, wayfaring, photography, exploring the park and much more.

Entry is free but a pay-and-display parking charge applies in our main car parks at the visitor centre and next to Mapperley Reservoir.

The car park on Shipley Hill is for Blue Badge holders only.

Parking for Blue Badge holders is free on all car parks but you must clearly display the permit to avoid a parking fine.

For further information on parking please go to car parking at Shipley Country Park.

A free 'Guide to Shipley Country Park' leaflet is available at the visitor centre, and information panels can be found on each car park.
