Aspley and Broxtowe Estate

Surrounded by the ring road, it would be easy to overlook Aspley and Broxtowe Estate, but these areas are speckled with green spaces - both parks and nature reserves are not far away - ideal for local residents to explore, play, or relax in. The Wildlife in the City team is very involved in this area.

Broxtowe Country Park

Broxtowe Country Park

Broxtowe Country Park is a large, 46 hectare site, between Aspley, Broxtowe Estate and Nuthall.  It has a mix of woodland and open green spaces, as well as sports facilities.  Phoenix Adventure Centre - a busy local play centre - adjoins the park, and it’s a short walk to one of the many entrance points from the surrounding housing estates.

Broxtowe Country Park is managed by Nottingham City Council.

Quarry Holes

Quarry Holes

Quarry Holes was once, well, a quarry! It has now become an urban woodland, with areas of wildflower meadow.  Locally often called “Tilbury Woods”, the reserve is a great place to escape away from busy roads.

Quarry Holes is managed by Nottinghamshire Wildlife Trust on behalf of Nottingham City Council.
