Things to Do Derwent Fest

About Derwent

Derwent Waterside Park is the perfect location to enjoy time in the fresh air and with the people you love.

Your adventure here begins with the convenient amenities to enhance your visit such as a play park for youngsters; cycling and walking routes to explore with two and four-legged friends; a cafe serving hot and cold refreshments and snacks, plus a shop bursting with gifts and angling essentials.

Our interactive play space is designed to let young creative minds wander through play and discovery. From thrill-seeking tots to daring teens, our outdoor adventure playground encourages children to engage in the open air whilst boosting their health and fitness.

After the kids have tired of running around, our Derwent Waterside Park cafe provides the perfect retreat for lunch. And with self-service, you can pick up a tasty treat to enjoy al fresco at several picnic areas on site.


Dogs are very welcome at Derwent but must be kept on leads. We do, however, have a 12 acre secured doggy field to let your four-legged friend run free.

Please can we remind all visitors that entering the water for unauthorised swimming, water sports / inflatables fun or just for a quick cool down is not allowed. We like to keep all our visitors safe and to do this we must request that you stay out of the water and its hidden dangers at all times.
