Caldy Nature Park is also partly within the ward and consists of 30 acres of wetland, woodland and meadows. There is an active Friends of Caldy Nature Park, who organise events throughout the year.
Friends of Caldy Nature Park
The ‘Friends of Caldy Nature Park’ was formed in 1991 when Chester City Council took over responsibility for the area.
They play an active part in the development and maintenance of the Park, and provide a link between Cheshire West and Chester Council who own and operate the Nature Park, Huntington and Great Boughton Parish Councils and the local community.
The ‘Friends’ try to keep a balance between the needs of local people and the wildlife in the park. There are paths throughout the park, and seats at regular intervals.
There is a Committee, and members are always welcome to become involved in the running of the Friends Group and organising the events.
They have been involved when large scale alterations to the Nature Park have been proposed.
The Nature Park is very well used by local people and there is are regular events throughout the year, the Duck Race, Wildflower Walks, an evening Walk in the Dark, Teddy Bears Picnic, and Countryside Day.
Every month there is a Working Party, and special days are arranged for larger projects such as planting the trees for the Queens Jubilee Orchard.
You can join The Friends of Caldy Nature Park at any of the events and receive regular newsletters.
