Set in the heart of Colwick Country Park’s 250-acre site, Colwick Park Adventure Centre is an eco-friendly activity base which has been providing outdoor, environmental and adventurous educational activities to the citizens of Nottingham and beyond since 2005.

The building itself is designed to be environmentally sustainable, with electricity generated by solar panels and a small wind turbine.  The centre is also fully equipped with changing rooms, showers, toilets, a small kitchen area and a meeting room/classroom.

The Centre has obtained the LOTC (Learning Outside the Classroom) Quality Badge, Adventuremark and holds an AALA (Adventure Activities Licensing Authority) Licence.

These factors, combined with our fantastic location, create an ideal Centre for outdoor learning and adventure sessions for all ages delivered by our fun, motivated and professional Adventure Team.
