Natural History in Grosvenor & Hilbert Park

Our park has diverse habitats ranging from the formal Upper Lake with it's ducks, moorhens, black headed gulls and kingfisher (yes, kingfisher) to the playground, cafe and bowls green, though to the wetlands area, into the woods where there is an abundance of bird and insect life, across the expanse of the King George's Field to the allotments where the occasional deer is seen.

This of course makes the park an ideal place to explore for any budding (or experienced) nature lover.

In this section we will attempt to share some of this. Starting with a brief summary of the Hilbert Woods Local Nature Reserve by the Kent High Weald Partnership (KHWP) who manage the woods. KHWP also arrange some work activities in the woods so keep an eye on our events list for details.
