Black Bear Park

UK»England»Cheshire»Warrington»Black Bear Park

Black Bear Park is a linear park that provides links across the Latchford, Stockton Heath and Westy areas of the town. A once busy canal route the park has now been transformed into a wildlife haven. Plants and animals have been gradually encouraged onto the site by a programme of tree and wild flower planting and the creation of habitats such as the excavation of the pond. Black Bear Park is an ideal starting point for exploring the Trans Pennine Trail and The Mersey Way. The Trans Pennine Trail joins the park near to Stockton Heath swing bridge, while the Mersey Way meets the park at Kingsway Bridge. Long Tailed Tits a small grey and delicately marked bird is a frequent visitor to the park particularly in the winter when it joins large mixed flocks of blue and great tits. Although shy, water voles may be seen along the ditches of the park. Sometimes confused with the brown rat, the water vole has a short thick head, rounded nose and hairy tail.
