The Wollaton Park Lake, Highfields Lake, the Canal and the River Trent are ALL places you SHOULD NOT SWIM. Not only are they dangerous but the water is pretty contaminated and could make you quite ill. Ditto Attenborough.

.

Please report anyone you see risking their lives.
If you want to open water swim talk to the folks who run open swims at Colwick under supervised conditions

Jet Ski’s on the River Trent are dodgy too.

Autokarna Saturday, Sunday teatime – A Good Idea for leaving Wollaton Park.

Just an opinion, but if you leave Autokarna using this route, your journey might just be traffic jam free.

The exit is usually Cambridge Road, if you turn left out of Cambridge Road and at the fork in the road about 10 metres, use the Ilkeston Road (not the left hand fork ie the one back to the exhibitors and walking entrance) but the right hand fork in the road …straight on, up past Waitrose, right at the lights Glaisdale Drive, right at the next mini island (1)  and then straight on as near as poss at the next mini island (2) you will then see the traffic lights back onto the ring road, left or right.

Trying to get past the traffic and escape using Harrow Road just doesn’t work, it gridlocks.

Highfields Boating Lake

If the Autokarna, doesn’t float your boat, there’s a few other Parks, Cycle Routes and Walks nearby, as long as we aren’t gridlocked.
