Sit back and relax in our wildlife garden - or explore and discover the local wildlife.
The Visitor Centre is surrounded by a beautiful wildlife garden that visitors can enjoy.
You can bring your dogs into the garden, but they must be well-behaved and kept on their lead.
It contains many different examples of habitat that encourages the local wildlife:
- Grasses & bonsais
- Purbeck limestone herb planter
- Wildflower beds
- Native grasses
- ‘Wild’ area encompassing bug hotels, log piles, compost bin, brambles, nettles and a hedgehog house
- Bog garden
- Living willow sculpture
- Native hedges
- Fruiting trees
- Mini beast area
Along with the wildlife, the garden is home to some wonderful carved benches depicting the local flora and fauna as well as the subterranean play tunnel – giving children the chance to learn what animals live underground.
