The History of Caldy Nature Park

Updated: Aug 7, 2022

Caldy Nature Park was first established in 1991, details of our history can be found below.


Working with Chester City Council, the primary aim of creating a large area of wetland began.


The pond and the leats were excavated, taking water from the brook into the pond.


The pond and leats were re-excavated and a new wetland area created. The bridges were replaced and some paths rebuilt. The sculpture was erected near the car park and the wildflower area fenced off.


A new play area was created for the children.


Saw the creation of new community orchards as part of the Queen's Diamond Jubilee Celebrations and repairs to the damaged footpaths.


A new picnic table was installed at the request of local residents. This has disabled access and so can be used by all the community. Footpaths were repaired and a new tarmac path installed.


The Park retained its Green Flag status for another year thanks to all the hard work by our Ranger and the monthly working parties.


New signage was installed at all entrances to the park. The Park retained its Green Flag status for 2016/17.
