Wildlife & Flowers
The park has an amazing variety of wildlife.Foxes,squirrels and a large variety of birds and butterflies abound,with some rare birds recently sighted in the wildlife boardwalk area. If you spot anything out of the ordinary send us a photo or tell us what you have seen. There are many bird boxes located in the trees and you could well see some rare birds.
Daffodils,snowdrops and bluebells have all been planted during the Autumn of 2009 to add to the many which are already in place.A visit to the park in the springtime is therefore a must for all plant lovers. The recently constructed sensory/wildlife/wetland area is currently being developed and as a result it is anticipated that a variety of rare plants will be attracted to the park in the future.
Further trees have been planted on the main walkway(a mixture of oak and larch)down the centre of the park and in Ladies' Walk( 3 Acer-kindly donated by a local member) during Spring 2011.
420 trees planted as part of the Queen's Jubilee Celebrations 2012. Local schools helped with the planting of the saplings.
Bird feeding station has been constructed and placed in the 'Ladies Walk' area of the park. You can take seeds/nuts along with you and sit on the bench to watch the birds feed.
