Park Information

This small woodland lies south of Deerswood avenue and is important for its woodland plants. Tree species such as oak, elm, willow, and poplar provide good habitat for insects, which in turn support a number of common bird species. There is a pond in the northern wetter part of the wood.

The woodland often floods in wet weather but a circular path that leads around from Deerswood Avenue in south Hatfield is accessible most of the year.
