This former landfill site has been developed into a wildlife haven in partnership with local groups. Relict estuarine habitat is a major feature of the reserve, but the 13 hectare site also includes woodland, meadow, wetland and ponds providing homes for more than 500 species of wildlife.
- Local nature reserve declared in 1991
- Water features include ponds, wetland and scrapes, where heron, kingfisher, sedge warblers and snipes can be spotted
- Meadows and grassland containing bee, common spotted, southern marsh and butterfly orchid varieties
- Woodland provides habitat for nesting birds and dormice
- Silurian Wenlock rock has been exposed in part of the site – the most southerly exposure of this rock in Wales.
The park is open to the public 24 hours a day, 7 days a week
