Breck Hill Park

A beautiful, Green Flag Award winning park set in the leafy suburbs of Woodthorpe, Notingham.

The park has a recently refurbished play area, a pavilion and football pitches and a community Orchard.  The views from the Woodthorpe Drive entrance are particularly attractive.

The park is popular with dog walkers, footballers and families using the playground.  It is also popular during the winter after snowfall as the steep bank is a wonderful natural landscape feature which is perfect for sledging.

The park also has a "Friends of Breck Hill Park" group. Find out more about the group by visiting their Facebook page.

Management Plan

A full copy of our management plan is available by viewing the Green Flag Management Plan and is deliberately designed as a working tool to assist staff, contractors, stakeholders and the park’s ’Friends group to articulate and share their vision, understand their roles and responsibilities and plan for the future of Breck Hill Park.
