The park has many access points, the main entrance being from Duffield Road (A6) leading to two free to use car parks, there are also entrances from Evans and Main Avenue, home to many large and aspirational properties within Allestree with several often coming up for sale each year. There is also a popular entrance on Cornhill, part of old Allestree village by the Evergreen Club. The main parkland area has a large expanse of undulating lawns with an adjoining woodland and several large expanses of meadows beyond. To the south of the park is a picturesque fishing lake with a pleasant pathway. Allestree Hall is a Grade II listed building dating from the 19th century, sadly the hall has been largely unused for a long period and currently (21.8.19) Derby City Council are seeking proposals to bring the Hall and outbuildings back into use. See the following link.
Part of the Hall is occupied by the Pro-shop for the challenging and hilly 18 hole golf course, there is also a bar, both open to the public.
A family friendly park enjoyed by many residents of Derby especially dog walkers, many of which are happy to engage in friendly conversation.
