Wildlife

The Park provides good roosting, nesting and feeding opportunities for many birds, such as wintering Fieldfare and Redwing along with all year round Song and Mistle Thrush, these together with mixed flocks of finches including, Chaffinch, Greenfinch, Bullfinch and Goldfinch provide a healthy list for a relatively small area of green space

Great Spotted Woodpeckers can be found nesting in the large Oaks and Poplars, alongside other hole nesting birds such as Blue, Great and Coal Tits, Nuthatch and Tree Creeper, with Blackbirds, Robins, Wrens and Dunnock flourishing in the undergrowth.

The park contains a diverse mix of vegetation and habitats with woodland plantation, a good number of mature and veteran oaks, open grass, a large pond with muddy margins, hedgerow and mature woodland bordering the green railway corridor.

Guided activities and tours
