Western Park in Leicester has a bit of everything: BMX circuit, a large range of table tops lines, berms, drops, and a pump track. 

Not really cross country although you will be able to ride some of the lines and the pump track. A good place to practice jumping and hang out.

Trails built by volunteers on Council land, legal and not demolished since 2001.

Fab sets of table top jumps & doubles for all skill levels.
Great short runs & nice & compact to blast straight back up for another run

Just fun to be had all day . This little spot is hard to beat on a summer afternoon with your mates. If you like flow jumps it's the spot , there's nothing to serious but enough to keep all levels happy.
