    Details

    Central forest park is a beautiful green space in the heart of the city. It provides facilities for walking, cycling, dog walking, informal sports, and skateboarding. The grassland provides an important home for insects, birds, and unusual plants, while carboniferous fossils can be found in the loose shale of the pit mound.

The Greening for Growth programme of environmental improvements was launched in 2003 and is the largest environmental regeneration programme in the West Midlands. Greening for Growth aims to create Well used and maintained landmark parks that offer more leisure opportunities and attract visitors to the area. A North Staffordshire network of safe, attractive off-road routes for pedestrians and cyclists. Canals, rivers and disused railways will link green spaces with homes, work places and leisure facilities, 28km of greenways will be created or upgraded.
