Portland Park

Portland Park, a 15 minute walk from the centre of Kirkby-in-Ashfield is a country park which transports you into a quiet, relaxing, nature filled oasis.

The park has been designated a Site of Special Scientific Interest (SSSI) due to an unusual geological feature which encourages a number of rare wildflowers to bloom. 

Nature trails wind across the park grass and woodland areas so you can see, at first hand, nature at its most impressive! 

Once you have worked up an appetite in the park, visit the café and visitors centre, complete with picnic area and nature garden for hot and cold food and drinks.

Then come back for more!

Since early 2016, the cafe has been run by a Cafe Bosco Ltd as the 'The Fat Rabbit', to visit their Facebook page click here.  The visitors centre is available for hire for a wide range of events and family gatherings to work 'away days' and meetings. Hot and cold food can be requested in advance if required in order to make your visit as pleasant as possible. For contact details please visit their Facebook site.
