Impressive Entrance Gates

West Park is the largest park in the Borough of Erewash and has previously achieved Green Flag status.

As well as a large range of excellent outdoor sports and recreational facilities, the park has significant local historic importance and has a number of historic features. The park also hosts a range of events, which attract thousands of people.

Recently, the park has undergone a huge programme of improvements to make it an even more welcoming place to visit and we are committed to continuously improving the facilities.

Tree Trail

Over the last few years, a Tree Trail has been incorporated into the park for the pleasure of visitors. This mile-long trail will take approximately one hour to complete.

Tree Planting on the Park

A number of new trees, all native to the UK, have been planted along the main avenue of West Park as part of a programme of landscaping and re-planting at the Long Eaton park.

The new trees were planted to replace the over-mature poplar trees, which had to be felled after an Independent survey found that they had become brittle and dangerous having gone well past their natural lifespan of 60 - 80 years.
