About

Situated in the rolling countryside of the Roach Valley at the south of the District, the 200 acre beautiful wildlife park continues to mature, providing unique recreational facilities for residents and visitors to the area. The woodland, lake, open grassland and network of connecting paths and bridleways also provide habitat for a huge range of animals and plants.

The park lies in some of the most beautiful countryside in South Essex and makes the most of an exceptional rolling setting to create a mix of open grassland and woodland a habitat for many plant and animal species. Her Royal Highness, Princess Anne, visited the newly created park in 2003 to celebrate the completion of the first stage in this major project.

The first phase of creating the park has been completed, with the planting of 28,000 trees. These trees are all native and include the hornbeam, oak and ash. To celebrate the 200th anniversary of the Battle of Trafalgar, an avenue of 200 oak trees was planted in the park.

The park is taking shape out of a vision of turning an area of farmland into a public open space where everyone can enjoy all that the countryside has to offer. There are numerous public rights of way for walkers, cyclists and horse riders to enjoy. Three areas of open grassland have been established with various types of grasses including Cocksfoot, Timothy and Yorkshire Fog. These will be mown to create species-rich meadows.
