Bass' Recreation Ground
COVID-19 (Coronavirus) updates
There is much to discover at this time of year on our parks. Please follow the new guidance and visit individually, only with members of your own household, or to meet with just one other person from outside your household if you are alone.
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”.
