Little Belhus Country Park

A new country park being developed in South Ockendon, Essex

86 hectares of former gravel pit and landfill site in South Ockendon, is now being developed into a new country park.

The park is divided into three areas; North Field, South Field and East Field. North Field being furthest from habitation will be predominately managed for wildlife but South Field being nearer the houses can have more visitor attractions. East Field being next to the main entrance off Arisdale Avenue includes the car park and is a Local Wildlife Site due to its insect life. The finished areas have been opened up to the public.

Volunteers are welcome to join in the work at Little Belhus Country Park.
