Tread Lightly

Visitors to Home Park should Tread Lightly. That is, they should respect the environment, the wildlife and the fragile ecosystems and habitats that support the many species of fauna and flora, some of which are rare and protected.

The park is open to everyone to enjoy. It offers space for a wide range of activities including walking, running, and just doing nothing.

One activity not allowed is flying drones, as they disturb the wildlife.

You can help to tread lightly by avoiding the following disrespectful behaviours:

  • Leaving litter
  • Lighting barbecues and bonfires
  • Removing chestnuts, flora and other natural objects
  • Disturbing fallen and dead wood
  • Dumping of pets and plants
  • Dog waste
  • Uncontrolled dogs
  • Off-road cycling
  • Speeding traffic
