Country Park 
The valley, park and river are fantastic places to spend your leisure time, whether you are walking your dog, riding your bike, having a picnic or just taking a leisurely walk in the park. These are great places to do a spot of bird watching and to listen to their wonderful songs, look at the wild flowers and historic artefacts, use the outdoor gym equipment and try to get fit or just relax in the peaceful atmosphere.

We have to protect and look after these areas to ensure that they will be there for future generations to enjoy.
