What you’ll find there…

If you take a loop around this nicely maturing meadow, you’ll find a treasure trove of habitats. Nature-lovers will appreciate the lovely mosaic of grasses, wildflowers, native trees and ponds. A highlight is the fantastic reed bed, home to all sorts of dragonflies, birds and amphibians. Surfaced paths allow you to enjoy the extent of the meadow, no matter the time of year, and dogs have plenty of space.

Comfortable benches and a natural play area that celebrates the seasons are great additions.

On your way out of the car park look out for a very avant-garde deer buck statue in the housing estate!
