About Us

Countess of Chester Country Park brings the countryside closer to the city, providing visitors with the opportunity to enjoy natural and peaceful surroundings as they wander around the park’s pathways.

What you can see

Down at the wetland you may spot a Kingfisher spectacularly dart into the water or a grey Heron patiently waiting at the water’s edge. Kestrels hover majestically over the grasslands, which in summer attract colourful butterflies such as the Common Blue, Peacock and Red Admiral. Whilst in the woodland you may see a Greater Spotted Woodpecker or a Sparrowhawk. The park has a variety of wetland and meadowland habitats as well as woodland areas that are being enhanced by new planting. A new Nature Reserve is due to open in September 2020 which is part of Chester Zoo’s Wildlife Connections project. Various sites within the park have wildflower meadows created with the help of local schools and other visitors and volunteers. Regular wildlife surveys take place within the park and the number of birds, butterflies etc has increased significantly since it opened. The current wetland is home to many animals and plants, in particular, toads which are now an endangered species.
