There are many wildlife conservation projects being carried out in the park. These include the creation of loggeries and 'dead hedges' within woodland areas, the planting and management of reed bed areas, the creation of a wetland and wildflower area in the Silt Pen, the planting of native trees such as English Oak and Birch, the coppicing of Elm on the canal banks, and the planting of native-species hedgerows along fence-lines.
Visitors will also be likely to notice changes to the grassland management. In several areas, but particularly around the new sports pitches, the grass is being allowed to grow longer and wildflowers are being encouraged. In carefully selected areas, a total of 10,000 native wildflowers have been planted, including: Field Scabious, Knapweed, Meadow Crane's Bill, Red Campion, Lady's Bedstraw, Devil's Bit Scabious, Meadow Vetchling and Lady's Smock.
