Rawcliffe Bar Country Park


Bog, Mixed Woodland, Nature Reserve, Wildflower Meadow


Dog Friendly, Volunteering, Walking, Wheelchair Accessible

Rawcliffe Country Park as we know it today was built to coincide with the construction of Rawcliffe Park and Ride site. The grounds were landscaped, woodlands planted, and a pond installed. The pond is home to several kinds of dragonfly and damselfly. A cornfield on the site is a haven for wild flowers, insects and birds such as the corn bunting. Mice and voles can be seen with a keen eye out and about and you might even spot a kestrel hunting them too! The site really has really improved local biodiversity and has also provided a space for in which local residents can enjoy nature
