You will find picnic tables at the Linacre road car park and also at the lake and football pitches.

The northern end of the park is elevated and offers spectacular views over Chesterfield to Hardwick Hall and Bolsover Castle and on towards Nottinghamshire and Lincolnshire. The high ground is great for kite flying and popular with model plane enthusiasts.
