New Events

Friends of Alvaston Park Community Group Dog Walk Launch April 17th 2014 
Friends of Alvaston Park, Derby are joining together with Where to Walkies and starting up a new community group dog walk, the first of these will be on Thursday 17th April 2014 at 10am meeting at the cafe near the lake. The walk is about an hour doing a lap of the whole park, this is a nice easy walk on the flat mostly on paths and well maintained grass. This walk is mainly off lead for the dogs but there are some areas when dogs will be required to be on leads. Part of this walk is along side the river and near the artificial lake where there are many local wild birds. Car parking is free and the park can be accessed via Meadow Lane off the A6 London Road, Derby. We are hoping for a good turn out and that this will be the first of many community group dog walks with Friends of Alvaston Park.
