Country Park

 

Welcome to Cranbrook Country Park, 30 hectares of beautiful varied habitats and public amenity spaces. We are Tara Jones and Claire Morrison, the Education Ranger and the Open Space Ranger here. We are 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. We are working with the people of Cranbrook to make the most of this amazing space for people and for nature. Within Cranbrook we have three beautiful meadows: long, stone and great which make up the country park. The meadows are home to a large range of biodiverse habitats including Kingfishers, bats, ducks, insects and plants. As part of our roles we will be surveying the park to identify how many species of flora and fauna currently reside within the park.

If you have any ideas on volunteering, education and events please contact our Education Ranger Tara Jones on ranger@cranbrooktowncouncil.gov.uk

If you have any concerns or feedback about the our public spaces including the country park please contact Claire Morrison openspace@cranbrooktowncouncil.gov.uk
