Details

Markeaton Park not only offers vast open parkland to completely get away from it all, but also caters for all age groups with a multitude of entertaining and sporty facilities at the Mundy Play Centre.
Crazy golf, pitch and putt, donkey rides, electric cars and a fun boating lake with canoes are all available. Take a ride on the traditional miniature steam train that regularly chugs around the park. Round everything off with a visit to the Markeaton Craft Village - there you can view a variety of craft workers demonstrating their fine skills in stained glass creation, pottery making and decorating, photography, honey manufacturing and picture framing.

Most of the attractions above are available during weekends and school holidays from Easter to October.
