Clyne Valley Country Park
Clyne Valley Country Park is the city's only country park. Within its 700 acres you will find a very varied landscape ranging from open and wooded hillsides, steep gorges and quarries to meadowland and wet valley floor. This variety provides a range of habitats for a great diversity of plants and animals.
A number of different woodland types can be seen: dense oak, birchwoods and spacious beechwoods.
Birdlife is abundant: common types such as wagtails, wrens, nuthatches, robins and woodpeckers can be found together with the more unusual nightjars, blackcaps and buzzards. Small mammals in the area include grey squirrels, badgers and foxes.
A number of quarries remain. In particular Clyne Quarry in the north not only provides spectacular views but is of considerable geological interest.
Water is also an attractive element of the park. The Clyne River weaves through the area and there are a number of attractive lakes and ponds. In addition there are a number of manmade water courses.
