Hope Carr Nature Reserve
Originally a grassy desert, the 37 acre nature reserve has been transformed into a haven for wildlife. Wildflower meadows, wetland and woodland habitats provide variety for a diverse range of species.
Conveniently accessible by public transport, and located off the East Lancs Road, Hope Carr Nature Reserve is easy to get to. The circular path is suitable for both wheelchairs and pushchairs and starts and ends in the car park.
Take a brisk walk around the site, enjoying the different habitats, spending time to identify species along the way, including birds from the well-positioned bird hide.
