Oakhill Nature Reserve is not just a stroll in the woods. From the moment you arrive you are welcomed with all the beauty nature has to offer. Native wildlife is on view along with rare Dragonflies, stunning Butterflies and many varieties of birds.
Oakhill and the associated pools known as the Brickponds, form a gem of a site in Goole nestled between the Canal, Port and Railway. It is one of the best Dragonfly and Damselfly sites in Yorkshire and the ever growing wild bird population promotes a healthy and increasing natural habitat. Oakhill is now also home to nationally threatened, declining bird species such as the Willow Tit.
With over 200 plant and wildflower species recorded and increasing wildlife residents it makes this site a perfect place for all nature lovers to enjoy for many years to come.
However, many people in Goole don’t know Oakhill exists. East Riding of Yorkshire Council has recently erected new signage so it’s even easier for visitors to find Oakhill. Recent improvement work also includes upgraded pathways, new benches, sculptures and interpretation boards.
