Queens Park Conservation Management Plan

Working with the Friends of Queens Park, in 2018 a draft Queens Park Conservation Management Plan was developed and consulted on. 

Following this, a project to increase marginal planting in the pond and install a dipping platform to create a new observation point over the water and improve the experience of interacting with the wildlife went ahead.   

You can read the draft Conservation Management Plan for Queens Park here.

Queens Park Pond

At the centre of the park is a large wildlife pond, which is a great attraction for visitors, with waterfowl such as Geese and Moorhens to feed with grain and seeds.
Please note: don’t feed the birds with bread - it's not good for them and it encourages the local herring gulls to scavenge.
There are also water cascades going down into the pond from the peace garden area.

You can also Dedicate a Bench or Donate a Tree at this park.
