Easter Active


Get out and active over the Easter holidays with our FREE* walks and guides across Swadlincote and around South Derbyshire.

During the Easter holidays, many attractions and visitor sites will remain closed, so why not pick up a few new trails and walks that are not only fun ways to keep active, but also enjoy the outdoors and our parks?

Take your pick of activities and outdoor attractions this easter…

Walking - Healthy Challenges 











Walking - Family Fun

In these egg-ceptional times we urge you to follow the latest Government restrictions when out and about, enjoying the fun with just your household or support bubble, and making sure you follow social distancing at all times.

Sporting Choices


The Parks Team throughout 12 months of the Pandemic have been working hard to ensure South Derbyshire residents have open, safe, social space to exercise. As the Government’s Roadmap is introduced, the Parks Team continue to keep our parks and open spaces a place for you to enjoy and visit.

From 29 March, outdoor gatherings of either 6 people (the Rule of 6) or 2 households will be allowed, making it easier for friends and families to meet outside.

We will also be reopening outdoor sports, including Tennis Courts, Outdoor Gyms, Multi Use Games areas and Outdoor Tennis Tables. Sadly, we are unable to offer any equipment, but all are welcome to use your own for the time being. See what's on offer at Eureka Park  Maurice Lea Memorial Park, Newhall Park
