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 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 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.

A popular, Green Flag Award winning park. There is plenty to do on this site - with sport pitches, play areas, and a fitness station! A great excuse to get outside.
Wildlife in the City works closely with Nottingham City's local libraries - a great place for resources about your local environment.
