Things to do

Viewing platforms

Lots to see!

Two viewing platforms were officially opened in the park in July 2020. The platforms provide views as far as Lincolnshire and Leicestershire. Each platform has interpretation panels with information about some of the sights you can see.

Sights to look out for include:

  • Lincoln Cathedral, once the tallest in the world!
  • St Mary Magdalene Church, Newark, used as a lookout during the civil war
  • Netherfield lagoons, a legacy of industry, now a wildlife haven
  • Belvoir Castle, dating back to the 11th century

The platforms, facing to the North and South of the park, both feature wheelchair and pushchair accessible ramps, to ensure that they can be enjoyed by as many visitors as possible.
