Tag in the park is developed by the Smart Sensing team at Nottingham Trent University as part of the 5G Connected Forest project and is funded by the Department for Digital, Culture, Media and Sport (DCMS) in collaboration with Nottinghamshire County Council and Parkwood Leisure along with other project partners. 


The app centres around a treasure-trail activity, utilising sensors and tags at Rufford Country Park, users will be provided with clues to explore the park and complete the activities. For those who complete 10 out of 16 of the key locations at Rufford and complete 2 short questionnaires, they’ll be able to claim a free coffee or small sweet treat, from the Coach House Cafe. And even better there is no need for a 5G enabled device to join in.


To complete the trails around Rufford there is no need for 5G enabled devices.


What is the purpose of the 5G Connected Forest Project? 

It is to help accelerate the deployment of 5G networks which in turn will ensure the UK can take advantage of the applications those networks can enable.

It maximises the productivity and efficiency benefits delivered by 5G.

It creates new opportunities for UK businesses, homes and abroad and encourages investment.
