In England, Sites of Special Scientific Interest (SSSIs) are designated by Natural England, which is responsible for protecting England's natural environment. Designation as an SSSI gives legal protection to the most important wildlife and geological sites
Designated as a SSSI, Weldon Woodland Park is an ancient woodland of 51.7ha consisting of mainly ash trees, maple and hazel. It has diverse flora, especially on grassland rides, and unusual plants on the wettest soils. Insects include the uncommon purple emperor butterfly.
When visiting the park you can also find grassland walks and adult fitness trail, bmx track, half pipe skateboard unit, junior football pitch, basketball pitch and 2 children's play areas.
