Part of the Greenfield Community forest project, Dob Park is a popular and well-used community park. It's bigger than it looks and, although there's only one dog poo bin by the entrance, people obviously do scoop the poop. A useful place for a doggie leg stretch if you're heading for the M1.
GPS coords for start of walk: 53.0440, -1.2207 On-road parking. No facilities here. Hucknall's claim to fame is the grave of Lord Byron, poet, in the church in the middle of the town.

Small but a nice walk.
Unless it's dry, it's probably a bit of a boggy walk. There are some designated gravel paths but for the most part, it's a man made path, which can understandably get a bit mucky during wetter weather. If you search for Washdyke Lane, this will give you a small lane which you can park on for free. I dont think it gets majorly busy as its not massive. There are 2 seconds to Dob park. A wooded area on the right and then the bigger, more open section on the right.
There is 1 bin at the gate entrance so you'll have to carry your poops for the remaining duration of the walk.
There are plenty of trails throughout the park so you could easily do different walks when there. There is an open part of the field so the dogs can have more of a run around.
I'd definitely go again!
