A day outdoors when the weather's fine

The two hundred acres of Markeaton Park make for a lovely place for families to go for a stroll, a cycle, have a picnic or play a game.

Free activities

Markeaton Park is a great place to visit if you are on a small budget. Grab a picnic, go walking and let the children have a whale of a time in one of the adventure playgrounds. Or bring your bikes and go on a family cycle ride!
