Habitat & Wildlife Conservation


There is a natural transitional zone between the formal park and the wildlife area; and this creates a surprisingly tranquil enclave for wildlife, even when the park is at its busiest.


Although there are paths running through the wildlife area (providing access to walkers who also appreciate its tranquillity) most of the site is covered by thick undergrowth which remains undisturbed; and it is completely unlit and lies away from any properties or any kind of night-time disturbance, other than some traffic noise from the town.


The programme of surveys and research will continue, and the information obtained will be used to ensure habitats are managed appropriately and that a careful balance is maintained between the needs of park users and the desire to protect and encourage wildlife.
