For those visitors to Derby who are looking for something to do that offers a peaceful and calming respite from the hustle and bustle of urban city life, there’s the Darley Park to provide just what they’re looking for. Located just minutes away from the city’s center, so that it doesn't take too much time out of your schedule, the Darley Park nonetheless offers a pleasant retreat in the form of relaxing walks and casual sporting events.
In the summer, the park is a popular spot for rowers, and in the winter, the slopes make for excellent skiing opportunities. There are also extensive collections of colorful and fragrant plants, many of which can’t be seen anywhere else due to their being endangered, so be sure to experience them while you’re here. The park’s river makes for a great sight to just sit down and stare at, marveling in the natural beauty that is too often taken for granted.
