Park Information

Studio Way Woodland is an attractive belt of natural habitats.

The woodlands are a mix of mature oak trees with remnants of old hedgerows running through them. The undergrowth of hawthorn, blackthorn and bramble creates a perfect home for small mammals and birds.

The flowering plants provide a rich source of nectar for butterflies and bees. Small patches of bluebells can be found in the more mature areas of woodland.

Bats can be seen on a warm summers evening hunting for insects in the tree canopies and if you are lucky you may catch a glimpse of a fox or even a Muntjac deer.

Listen out for the drumming of a great spotted woodpecker on the oak trees and look out for speckled wood butterflies flitting about the glades in the dappled shade.

Potterswood Park contains a play area and kickaround area for children as well picnic tables for that moment of rest amongst all the exploring.

Kelly Court Play Area is aimed at children up to the age of 8…although the mound can be climbed by all ages!
