Beeston is lucky to have so many green spaces nearby. One of my favourites just happens to be Highfield’s Park, a lovely lake with wooded areas, a play park and several arts spaces.
The lake is home to plenty of waterfowl, including a family of Egyptian Geese, as seen here. You can hire boats in the summer so can row among these beautiful birds.
This whole area is getting a much-needed rejuvenation this year, including some dredging of the lake (it’s pretty much solid silt these days), a new adventure golf course and some general improvements to everything.
I’m really looking forward to seeing how it all looks when they’re done.
