This nature reserve is on the site of the former Wandle Valley Sewage Works, which became redundant in the 1970s
The mixture of habitats creates a valuable oasis for quiet enjoyment of nature, with abundant plant life, including hawthorn, silver birch, ash, hazel, field maple, dog-rose and blackthorn.
Frogs, toads and newts live in the ponds but the bodies of water are not sufficient to support a fish population.
The park is used by locals for walking and dog walking, picnicking, and observing the pondlife.
