Berry Hill Park is being threatened with closure by the trustees responsible for the running of it.

The park is used and loved by generations of families. It’s a haven for wildlife and used by dog walkers, local sports clubs & schools. It hosts nationally recognised sporting competitions and holds the potential to be one of the most unique and beautiful open spaces in the district.

On Saturday 10 November 2018 a huge demonstration was held following the release of a statement from the Park Trustees. They announced that the park would close on 30th November unless a deal could be reached with Mansfield District Council that would in effect hand over the running of the park to the council. 

We call upon Mansfield District Council, the Trustees of Berry Hill Park & Coal Industry Social Welfare Organisation (CISWO) to:

Enter into a meaningful dialogue and ultimately reach an agreement;

1. That keeps the park open for future generations to enjoy.

2. Ensures that any agreement reached serves in the best interests of the park users and the wider local community.
