Country Parks and Playgrounds

There are many parks, playgrounds and recreation grounds throughout the District. Some are council owned, others parish or town councils. All are free to use and have excellent facilities.

Children's Play Areas and Skate Parks in District of North East Derbyshire

All playgrounds were closed by the Government in their announcement of 23rd March 2020.

On 23rd June 2020, the Government announced that playgrounds may reopen from 4th July 2020. However, this does not mean all playgrounds will reopen from that date We have created a COVID-19 playground info list (updated 22 July 2020) and will keep you updated on any changes. If the playground in the list does not show it is open, please don't use the equipment.

The playgrounds we maintain are checked every month that they are in a good, safe condition. Please contact us if you find any problems with one of our areas.

We have two main country parks in our district. These are Grassmoor Country Park and Rother Valley Country Park.
