Our Wildlife and Parks teams have created walks around 12 of our parks and open spaces to encourage use of particular paths to avoid disturbance to wildlife, encourage use of under used areas of the parks and improve access to nature for mental health and wellbeing.
The Environmental Education Pack is designed for use by teachers, community groups and families to have fun learning about Holywells Park and its wildlife, introducing young people to the natural environment.
