COVID-19 (Coronavirus) updates
Respect other people and the measures that local authorities and site management have put in place to help ensure social distancing and protect the natural environment.
Bass Recreation Ground is located within the city centre, close to Intu and Pride Park.
The park can easily be accessed from Derby's bus and train stations which are 5 minute’s walk away. The Recreation Ground is bound by the River Derwent to the north and is 4.5 hectares in size.
The space was bequest to the City by a generous benefactor Michael Bass, leader of the Bass Brewery. The land carries a covenant which restricts its use to “be forever used and enjoyed by the inhabitants of the Borough of Derby for a public play and recreation ground”.
