Swimming is NOT an option, its dangerous but the Riverside is a super place for a walk and a picnic. Beeston Riverside is just ten minutes drive from Wollaton Park!

check the new leisure and swimming page for Leisure Centres!

Beeston small town has lots of small cafes and restaurants and super small greengrocers, butchers with reasonable deals, a market and supermarkets. Theres one hour free parking too. The tram runs through and onto Chilwell  and theres a local bus service to the riverside (its not a huge hike from the bus-tram station, about 20 m walk)

You can walk or cycle along the River path to either Nottingham (via Clifton Bridge riverpath) or in the other direction, past the Marina (nice pub!) to Attenborough Nature Reserve where theres a visitor centre and cafe.
