Shipley Country Park
Facilities at our countryside sites remain closed including:
- shops, cafes and visitor centres
- hire of all-terrain mobility scooters or ‘trampers’
- play equipment and outdoor gym equipment
- cycle hire at Middleton Top
- events cancelled from April until the end of June 2020
Residents living within walking distance can access our countryside sites and country parks in line with government advice to go for a walk, jog or cycle in their household group, keeping a safe distance from others once a day.
Please take any litter and dog poo bags home with you as bin collections on our site will be less frequent than usual.
Shipley Country Park is near Derby and Nottingham and offers 700 acres of attractive and varied landscape.
Whatever the season, there's 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.

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