Shipley Country Park

Park information

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.

Find out more about 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.
