150 acres of grade II parkland with 30 rides, extensive play grounds, lakeside walks, and the UK’s busiest narrow gauge railway. Wicksteed Park - the ideal venue for all celebrations and a full fun-packed family day out in the East Midlands. Owned and operated by the Wicksteed Charitable Trust – the home of children’s play.
The project to breathe new life into our historic lake and restore it to former glories is now underway.
A major part of this improvement work is to provide a new network of footpaths around the lakeside
area for you to enjoy.
We also want to improve it as a wildlife habitat and maximise the biodiversity of the Lake.
Unfortunately, this means there will be some temporary changes while we work and some parts of our
park will be inaccessible until the improvements are complete.
Please see the map opposite for details of temporary routes and restricted areas.
Please bear with us over the next few months. We will try to keep disruption to a minimum.
