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.
Normanton Park opened in 1909 as a place people could escape the heavily populated and industrial area. This date is proudly recorded on the clock-tower over the café.
The park linked Normanton Village with the new, industrial, inner-urban Normanton.
The park has been refurbished over the last few years. The roof of the pavilion has been replaced and the clock tower has also been refurbished.
There is a lot to do at Normanton Park, including walks around the traditional parkland, play a game of football on one of our pitches, play on the children's playground, or bring a picnic and relax on the grass.
What to do
There is disabled access to the park and level paths suitable for wheelchair users.
