City Woodland Parks

Woodlands in general are great for wildlife, particularly birds, bats and small mammals. Urban woodlands are very special as they are a ‘hotspot’ for nature in an otherwise built up area. City woodlands are quite rare and improve the quality of life for those that live in the environs

There are four woodland parks in the city:

Barna Woods

Merlin Woods

Terryland Forest Park

Roscam Woods
