Risley Moss provides a moss land habitat, the remains of a boggy landscape created at the end of the ice age. Now the landscape provides an important habitat for wildlife and so is a site of special scientific interest and has a Green Flag award. There is a range of trails to follow depending on distance and level of difficulty.
As well as exploring the moss habitats, families can explore the oak, ash and hazel woodland, as well as following the trail to see the picturesque meadows. If you are lucky, you may even spot an adder or a lizard on your travels. There are also decked observation ponds so that families can enjoy spotting newts, toads, frogs and dragonflies. There are also park art sculptures created by local artists to enjoy.
Additional information: The main path up from the car park to the visitor centre is quite steep, but there is a gentler access route from near the main gates. Picnics permitted. Toilets on site.
