Introducing ...


New Park Ranger Alastair Glenn has just joined the team appointed to look after Broxtowe Country Park!

After previously working as a Ranger at Rushcliffe Country Park he was looking for a bigger challenge to set his sights on.

Alastair (centre of picture) said “I’m really keen to get the public involved in their local park, it’s such a great open space, and I want the whole community to be using it!”

A whole host of new events will be occurring on the park throughout the year starting with a big Family Fun Day and continuing with other events and activities throughout the school holidays. 

The Family Fun Day takes place on Thursday 25th August between 12 – 4pm by the basketball court and BMX track. Bring a picnic and enjoy a range of sports, bouncy castles, music, Ranger activities, food and more!

The nearest entry point to this spot is Linfield road, NG8 6HR.
