Green Spaces

Charterhouse Heritage Park has a number of green spaces which are perfect for taking a walk, kicking a ball around or throwing a frisbee. Be mindful that the River Sherbourne is close by as well as a pond in one of the fields - children will need to be closely supervised. 

See if you can spot any wildlife - the park is home to all kinds of wildlife! The river is populated by moorhens, mallards, little egrets, heron, grey wagtails, kingfishers, dragonflies and damselflies. Roaming the landscape are muntjac deer, foxes, badgers, hedgehogs and rabbits. In the air, there are at least three different kinds of bat, as well as swifts, pheasants, buzzards, sparrowhawks, kestrels, pied and grey wagtails, woodpeckers, and many butterfly species.


There is a large car park next to the play area. This car park is free to use.
