What you’ll find there…
A lovely green place to visit during the summertime when the butterflies and dragonflies are enjoying the sunshine. With the Basingstoke Canal and numerous pretty ponds, there’s always some wildlife around. If you’re lucky, you may well spot a kingfisher!
Native trees, such as oak and beech, make it the perfect place for an autumn walk too! How many different species of tree can you spot?
Ideal for walks long or short. There’s an easy-access, surfaced path, taking in part of the Basingstoke Canal towpath. Or branch out to explore the network of unsurfaced paths, making walks of around 2km possible within the confines of the park. Longer expeditions if you explore the towpath.
