New wetland area

Water brings a magical quality to our park and as we are fortunate to have a large lake and two ponds.  We have created a new freshwater habitat, digging out the old rushes in the top pond, adding a small dam to control the water flow and finishing with a laid clay base.  Work on planting the shallow area with wetland plants will start in the Spring. Our aim is to make a really good habitat for a wide range of aquatic plants, animals, amphibians and birds. Many Iris’s were planted in the Autumn surrounding the pond, so lets hope this Spring it will look even better!
