Beautiful landscape, filled with wildlife and scenic walks and trails
Whisby Nature Park was created through quarrying for sand and gravel. Some elements of original quarry remain, including fragments of heathland, old hedgerows and a small oak woodland.
However, the land stripped bare from quarrying is now host to an abundance of rich vegetation and ecosystems with lakes surrounded by grassland, marsh, scrub and Willow Carr, plus six way-marked trails all between 1.2 to 3 miles. Look out for different kinds of birds, with new species visiting throughout the year.
Reserve open all year. Please note, the car park gate is closed at dusk.
