Goole is rich with Green Space and geological features teaming with wildlife. From a beautiful walk through Oakhill Nature Reserve to a stroll around our stunning public parks, there really is something for every nature lover to explore.
The ancient woodlands, wild flower rich meadows and aquatic areas of Oakhill Nature Reserve make it the ideal location to spot birds, wildlife and fascinating insects. The volunteer team are consistently updating their species lists and improving the site for everyone to enjoy.
If you just want a short stroll in the fresh air, followed by a refreshing cup of tea then why not visit West Park.
West Park has recently undergone a massive regeneration project to improve the facilities. There is now a beautiful Café on site hosting an array of tasty treats, delicious meals and refreshments.
You can wrap up warm and enjoy a mug of hot chocolate in the winter, watching the leaves fall from the trees, or a cooling ice cream in the summer while the children take full advantage of the adventure park.
And it’s not just Oakhill and West Park. We have miles and miles of River walks. Goole is situated on the banks of the River Ouse, which prompts the ideal opportunity to see wild aquatic life. Blacktoft Sand RSPB Nature Reserve is located right on the river. The reserve’s tidal reedbed is the largest in England and it is known for its wetland breeding birds, including marsh harrier, bittern and the bearded tit. We also have the wonderful Yorkshire Waterways Museums offering trips through Goole’s docks as well as a beautiful wildlife walk.
There is so much to explore you will never be spoilt for choice.
