Out and About
There are many pages of information about Parks and Open Spaces that are within easy
reach of the estate by car or public transport.
Rise Park Estate, lies on the northern edge of the City of Nottingham, and is within
a few minutes of very easy access to Junctions 26 and 27 of the M1 Motorway. It is
in attractive surroundings, bounded on one side by the 450 acre Bestwood Country
Park and on another by Bulwell Common and its golf course.
It is a relatively modern
housing estate of approximately 1450 homes, completed during the1960's, comprised
mainly of good quality three and four bed detached houses and bungalows, with a
small number of low rise flats. There is a small shopping precinct on the estate
and Tesco, Morrisons and Aldi have stores nearby.
The shopping areas of Bulwell, Hucknall and Arnold are all within easy reach - as
are the modern Ken Martin and Southglade Leisure Centres.
For the purpose of Nottingham City Council elections Rise Park falls within Bulwell
“Children Crossing” warning bollards at the School

Scamp 1997 -2012 Passed away peacefully 25th Feb 2012. A two times winner of the
local RSPCA 'Dog with the Waggiest Tail 'competition, Scamp was extremely sweet natured
& friendly with people, children and other dogs. Many of the parks and spaces featured
on this site would not have been visited without his company. A constant companion
and most faithful friend who will be most sadly missed.
