There is a Countryside Working Group set up to ensure the site is well kept and run with the aims of the Park in mind and to help maintain the site. Contact the Deputy Clerk to the Parish Council. Email [email protected] or T. 01603 712223 and ask for Claudia Dickson.
There were 1600 trees planted on the Park in 2015 following a grant from the Forestry Commission and the species listed are as follows:
Oak (400), Birch (300), Hazel (300), Cherry (100), Hawthorn (100), Field Maple (100), Guelder Rose (50), Sweet Chestnut (100), Crab Apple (50), Myrobalan Plum (50) and Blackthorn (50).
What is Brundall Countryside Park?
The Countryside Park was established by the Parish Council in 2014 to provide a place for the people of the Brundall to relax and exercise surrounded by nature.
Over 1600 trees and shrubs have been planted to establish native woodlands and an orchard, and flower-rich grasslands have been created. These habitats are already attracting a wide variety of wildlife and are managed sensitively following a management plan. We ask that members of the public, and their dogs (if applicable), protect this environment by refraining from walking on wildlife areas. The car park and network of mown paths and open areas are maintained to provide access around the site.
What can you do there?
The Countryside Park is intended primarily for quiet forms of recreation that will not disturb wildlife or other people using the park. Examples of suitable activities include walking, running/jogging, dog walking, nature watching, reading/drawing and quiet picnics.
Ball games and other energetic or noisy activities are not welcomed. Brundall Parish Council provides facilities for these elsewhere in the village. Cycling, equestrian activities, launching of drones, unauthorised motor or electric vehicles, barbecues, and fires are not permitted.
Anyone wishing to hold organised group activities must discuss this with the Parish Council and receive their permission prior to any event taking place. Brundall Countryside Park is a wonderful facility provided for the pleasure of villagers and visitors.
