About Sence Valley Forest Park

Sence Valley Forest Park is a 60ha country park created by Leicestershire County Council on a former opencast colliery site near Heather.

The site was named in the summer of 1998 following a competition among local schoolchildren. It includes the River Sence and three major lakes, which attract a wide variety of wildfowl. Large areas of the site are planted with Corsican pine, larch and poplars, which will provide an income when they are thinned in about 20 years. In addition, a range of native broadleaf trees have been planted to give variety and provied a habitat for wildlife. Meadows and open glades in the woodland also provide habitats for a variety of wildlife, including birds, insects and butterflies.
