Flora and fauna

One of the most important features of Coombe Country Park is the variety of habitats supporting both plant and animal life. In addition to the lake there is woodland, grassland, marsh, scrub and heathland.

A survey in 1983 revealed over 250 species of plant and over 650 different animals including grey squirrel, rabbit, woodmouse, Muntjac deer and a variety of birds.

The woodlands also contain a variety of wildflowers including lesser celandine, foxglove, bluebell, red campion, herb robert and many more, making the woods very attractive during spring and summer.
