Formerly a drift mine, landscaped in 1991 and transformed into a country park consisting of wide open spaces, woodland, amenity grassland and ponds, managed to protect and improve its habitats for the benefit of wildlife.


Water vole have been recorded on the park in the past and skylarks, buzzards and meadow pipit are often seen here. It is a valuable wildflower site for the south-east of the district and the ponds are home to a variety of dragonflies.


Looking for something a little different? Hunt for wild water creatures as you try your hand at pond dipping or search for a big catch as you go fishing. Low platforms around the park enable you to have a go at both activities. What creatures will you find?
