What you'll find there
Edenbrook is a dog friendly country park with plenty of surfaced paths and open space. It is popular with joggers and cyclists too. Features include a network of ditches, culverts and ponds designed to take floodwater away from the adjacent houses.
The large amount of standing water attracts a wealth of waders and ducks especially in winter. In spring and summer watch dragonflies flying low over the water and butterflies across beautiful meadows of wildflowers and grasses. If you’re lucky you might see a Common Lizard or a Grass Snake. In the winter, paths may be closed owing to flooding after heavy rain. This may reduce access – check out our social media pages for updates or below in the “News and updates” section.
Skylarks and other ground-nesting birds' nest on the ground between March and mid-September.
Please keep your dogs under control to help protect them during this time.
Top 10 species found at Edenbrook Country Park:
- Barn owl
- Reed warbler
- Common lizard
- Pipistrelle bat
- Emperor dragonfly
- Marbled white butterfly
- Ivy mining bee
