This great place for wildlife will also be a great place for people and its size will mean there should be plenty of space for different types of activities, both noisy and quiet. Places for events will be created as well as natural playgrounds, places for walking and picnics. Cyclists and Anglers will also be encouraged to visit and use the area.
People who live nearby will be able to get into and around the park easily using lots of walking and cycling routes, making the most of its facilities. Future jobs may be created in the different leisure and sports industries that could be based around the park.
