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 went ahead to:
- increase marginal planting in the pond
- install a dipping platform to create a new observation point over the water
- improve the experience of interacting with the wildlife

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