SchoolsEdit

ChurchesEdit

Bestwood Park Church (Beckhampton Road), Infant of Prague Catholic Church (Cherry Orchard Mount), and The Peoples Church (Gladehill Road).

Green AreasEdit

Sandy Banks Local Nature Reserve (LNR), and Glade Hill wood. The latter is on a small hill and so visible from all around. It is erroneously known locally as "Bendigo's Ring" since the original place of this name, in Bestwood Estate, is much less visible.[3]

Cricket groundEdit

Bestwood Park Cricket Ground was a cricket ground laid out in 1867 by William Beauclerk, 10th Duke of St Albans in the Bestwood Park area. It hosted one important match when in 1879 a Nottinghamshire Eleven played the MCC. The ground is now a public recreation area.[4]
