Tennis Court pond

Only a small pond but rich in wildlife, surrounded by Pussy Willow which is striking in March/April. The breeding ground for many insects including several species of Dragonflies, in late summer its main attraction is the Flowering Rush. The pink flowers are magnificent, the pond is a stronghold for this plant but it does survive in small numbers and only sporadically in the other ponds of the park. Migrating birds also depend on the insect life and shelter of this pond with it's marginal vegetation. Stronghold of the park's great crested newts.
