Welcome to Brocks Hill
Brocks Hill provides a vibrant and accessible community environmental Centre set within a developing landscape. This unique Centre, with its integrated sustainable technologies such as rain water harvesting and solar generation, is set in a country park of 30 hectares (67 acres). Mixed wildlife habitats include woodland, meadows, ponds and a community orchard which are all laid out with wheelchair and pram-friendly paths.
The site has received an accredited Green Flag award and Natural England Country Parks Accreditation Standard. It is supported by a dedicated team, helping visitors explore the natural environment and take part in regular activities and events for all ages.
The Country Park and Centre
The Country Park and Centre are an established part of the Borough’s local community, hosting everything from cross country championships to toddlers' walks, as well as natural history training days and events that allow participants to reconnect to the natural world around us.
Play areas inspired by the natural environment and a den building area provide a popular family focus, reflecting the site’s location in the heart of the community.
Additional elements include sculptures and orienteering courses around the park, as well as sponsored benches, tree avenues and plantings.
The Centre incorporates a café, a shop and toilets, as well as a hall and meeting room overlooking the Country Park which are available for hire. Accessible paths and free car parking mean it is a popular location.
Ponds and wildlife friendly plantings, holiday activities, wildlife lectures, team building and volunteering days mean that Brocks Hill Country Park provides something for everyone to have a great day out!
