As an oasis in the city, the Park has a tremendous variation of wildlife.

The variety of trees is much greater than you would see in other London parks, and is considered by some as an interesting arboretum in its own right.

Similarly the mammals, reptiles, birds, fish and insects take advantage of this diversity.

If you are interested in wildlife you might want to look out for some of the creatures that are the subject of national surveys, such as Hedgehogs or Stag Beetles.

We intend to include some articles on the effect of climate change in the Park.
