Public and Corporate Adventure Sessions

Come down to Colwick Park Adventure Centre or The Arches Adventure Base and have a go at a range of exciting outdoor activities!

Adventurous Activities in Nottingham

Colwick Park Adventure Centre is an eco-friendly adventure centre supporting access to activities in the Country Park. Built in 2005 to provide adventure programmes and environmental education for young people in Nottingham it can be the base for a range of fun and informative sessions. The Colwick Park Adventure Centre building is designed to be environmentally sustainable. Electricity is generated by solar panels and a small wind turbine, water is collected through a borehole, then stored and filtered and all our heating is provided by a pure, plant-oil burning boiler system making the whole site carbon neutral. These factors, combined with our fantastic location, create an ideal focal point for environmental packages and activities for schools and youth organisations. The centre is also fully equipped with changing rooms, showers, toilets, a small kitchen area and a classroom.

The Arches is tucked away underneath Lady Bay Bridge and is the ideal location for taster sessions in a range of adventurous activities. The centre is also floodlit, meaning bookings can be taken for evening sessions throughout the year! The Arches is also home to Nottingham's highest abseil tower!

All equipment is provided and sessions will be led by qualified staff. Under 18s must have a consent provided by their parent or carer.

Sessions can run between 9am and 5pm (Winter) or 10am and 8pm (Summer), Monday to Saturday.

Remember to bring some old trainers, a towel and a change of clothes!
