COVID-19 (Coronavirus) updates - Following the Government’s change in guidance, visitors will be able to make more use of Derby’s parks and open spaces from Wednesday 13 May.

The Derby Parks team are asking all park users to be considerate and continue to use social distancing to keep themselves and each other safe. Some facilities remain closed, please visit the news story for up to date information. You can contact the parks team by email at parksadmin@derby.gov.uk

The Orangery at Markeaton Park Craft Village and The Waterside Café at Alvaston Park are opening for takeaway Mon to Fri 10am to 4pm, and Weekends 10am to 5pm.

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”.
