Welcome to Cranbrook Country Park, 30 hectares of beautiful varied habitats and public amenity spaces. I’m Alice, and as the new Country Park Ranger here, I am keen to work with the Cranbrook community to learn about and explore the great outdoors together.
The natural world and our existence go hand in hand and it is so important for everyone to have access to green spaces. The health and wellbeing benefits of green spaces are immense and being outdoors in nature has been proven to deliver lasting mental health benefits. Not only that, green spaces help reduce pollution by filtering dust and pollutants from the air; they draw carbon out of the atmosphere helping in the fight against climate change; they provide a range of food and habitats for wildlife, and trees in particular help reduce the erosion of soils during flooding.
Cranbrook is so fortunate to have this incredible resource at the heart of its community. I’m really looking forward to working with the people of Cranbrook to make the most of this amazing space for people and for nature.
If you have any ideas on what you’d like to see happening in the Country Park or are interested in future volunteer work with us including events, surveys and practical tasks, I’d love to hear from you: firstname.lastname@example.org
