Other things to do

Alvaston Park lake

There's so much to do at Alvaston Park...


Pack a picnic and enjoy a relaxing day sitting by the lake and river. A popular spot for wildlife, you're sure to see plenty of ducks, geese and maybe even a heron!


There are 85 acres of land available to enjoy and explore - take a walk around the park and take in the open space whilst you stretch your legs.


The lake and river are managed by Earl of Harrington’s Angling Club. Season Ticket along with limited day and night tickets are available for Alvaston Park. For further information please visit the Earl of Harrington’s Angling Club website.
