Green space and community facilities

Gainsborough's two dominant landscape features are the River Trent to the east and the ridge, or escarpment, to the west. Historically, the town nestled in the linear space between, but post-war development saw the town expand over the ridge and into the rural landscape beyond.

The banks of the River Trent and the countryside and woodlands surrounding the town provide great opportunities for outdoor leisure activities. There is also Richmond Park and a number of other public green spaces, allotments and sports facilities, including the swimming pool and leisure centre and the prestigious Gainsborough Golf Course with two 18 hole courses, owned by Ping.

Other key attractions and facilities include Gainsborough Old Hall, The Trinity Arts Centre and Old Nick Theatre. For further details please see the maps below.
