Rushcliffe Country Park has received national recognition as the best budget and family-friendly picnic spot in England!
Across the nation, parks were ranked on multiple factors such as budget, child-friendliness and accessibility, as well as transport links, onsite parking and toilet facilities, by leading meat-free brand, Quorn.
Discussing the Park, the study said: “Perfect for those looking for a burst of nature and remoteness, you can meander through the 8km of pathways when searching for that hidden picnic spot away from the crowds.
“Bursting with wild meadows, grassland and woodland, keep your eyes peeled for birds, bees and natural beauty everywhere you look.”
The Country Park’s Manager, Alastair Glenn, said: “We welcome the fantastic news that the Country Park has been recognised as one of the best parks in the country for picnics and value for money!
“It’s a very family-friendly area with something for everyone, including a great play area, skatepark, sensory trail, visitor centre, outdoor education centre and a popular café.
“There are plenty of seats and benches around the park for everyone to enjoy a picnic or food from Coffee and Cake by the Lake, whilst enjoying the scenic views, nature and wildlife.
“We’re continuing to see significant investments at the Country Park with the recent opening of our outdoor shelter and path repair works are underway to further improve the visitor experience.”
A huge well done to the Country Park team and the Friends of Rushcliffe Country Park for all their hard work, year in year out, to receive this acknowledgement!
