Places where we can experience the outdoors, get some exercise, breathe some fresh air, run around or sit and watch.

Somewhere where the countryside is recognizable and we can make a link with wildlife, and maybe our natural selves.

Cotton End Park

Ten acres of green space with an assault course and zip wires, picnic tables, trees and wildflowers. The wildlife reserve has ponds, a dipping platform and a bird watching hide. There are sheep, bee hives, and a community orchard.

Mill Park Reserve

A pocket park with ponds, a bog garden and an observation platform by the stream, plus seats and a picnic bench. There is also a field centre, a butterfly garden, a human sundial, a wildflower meadow and a mini woodland.

Good News!

LBGS at Cotton End Park is now a registered charity with the Charity Commission.

Our Registered Charity number is: 1197110.
