Pond Dipping at Markeaton Park
Sun 5 Jul 2020, 2pm - 4pm
Join the Friends of Markeaton Park to discover the creatures living in Markeaton Lake.
Throughout the COVID-19 pandemic, the safety of the public and our staff has been the priority of Derby City Council. It is with regret that we are now announcing that all outdoor events, and events at Derby Arena and other venues, will not be running until at least the end of August. This event has been cancelled. Visit our news story for more updates.
Using pond nets, magnifiers and specimen tubes, help will be on hand to identify what you find and tell you a little about how it lives underwater.
It could be muddy and slippy beside the lake.
Meet at the boating hut at Markeaton Lake. Children under 16 to be accompanied by an adult.
Free event, just turn up!
