Situated close to Chester city centre, Caldy Nature Park is an area of woodland, meadows and wetland; a perfect spot for an afternoon stroll. Running through the park is the Caldy Brook - a tributary to the River Dee. The park also boasts a play area, maintained path network, plenty of benches for picnics and open space to enjoy.

​Friends of Caldy Nature Park

The Friends of Caldy Nature Park was formed in 1991 when Cheshire West and Chester Council took over responsibility for the area. 


The group plays an active role in the development and maintenance of the Park and provides a link between the council, Great Boughton, Huntington Parish Councils, and the local community. 


The Friends seek to keep a balance between the needs of local people and the wildlife in the Park. Their aims are:


  • To work at all times with officials appointed by Cheshire West and Chester Council (CWAC) to improve the recreational and natural assets of the area adopted by CWAC as Caldy Nature Park.

  • To consult with the Great Boughton and Huntington Parish Councils and the general public about plans to develop and manage the park.

  • To keep local people informed about developments in the Caldy Nature Park and to encourage them to become involved.

  • To seek funding from all appropriate sources to enable the group to pursue the above aims.

If you would like to support the Friends' efforts then please come and join them. The annual subscription to the Friends of Caldy Nature Park is £5 per household per year. As a member, you will receive a copy of their newsletter, information about events taking place at the park, and dates of workgroups.

Subscriptions are renewed annually in September but you may join at any time by entering your name and email address below.
