Osmaston Park was formally farmland owned by the Wilmot family of Osmaston.
The family owned Osmaston Hall which was originally located on nearby Ascot Drive. The present day park is a remnant of the rural landscape which once dominated this area. The park was gifted to the people of Derby, at the time Rolls-Royce came to Derby in 1907.
In the early 2000s with commitment from local residents who formed Osmaston People’s Park Regeneration Association, the Council undertook a regeneration plan by securing £0.5 million to create a valued and well-used community resource which you see today.
Osmaston Park has three distinct woodland areas, Ash Wood, Oak Wood and across the road at the rear of Moorways Sports Complex, Elm Wood.
The site has a rich wildlife value and you may be lucky to see song thrushes, house sparrows and other wildlife making their home in the woodland around the site.
