Kinson Common

A superb nature reserve nestled amongst the housing of Kinson

This nature reserve has a surprising number of habitats, including woodland, heathland, marsh and meadows.  This means it is also home to a wide range of plants and animals.

As well as the wildlife that lives on Kinson common you might also catch a glimpse of one of the grazing animals we use to help us manage the site.  The heathland at Kinson Common is a Site of Special Scientific Interest and a Special Conservation Area, so it has to be managed appropriately. 

Find out more about how we care for our natural spaces by reading our management plan.

Useful information

There are occasional guided walks throughout the year.  Use our map to find out where Kinson Common and our other parks and nature reserves are.

The Friends of Kinson Common are a group of volunteers that help us care for this site.  They carry out conservation work and help to monitor the wildlife of the site, as well as promoting it to members of the public.

Get in touch with them if you would like to find out more about their work.
