Claybury Woods and Park covers 69 hectares of a historic landscape famed for its nature and peacefulness. It contains an ancient area of oak and hornbeam woodland (18 hectares) locally renowned for its variety of woodland spring flowers, including bluebells, veteran trees and fungi.The surrounding parkland (which was a private estate of the former Claybury Hospital, now the gated housing estate, Repton Park) was initially arranged by famous landscape designer Sir Humphrey Repton, during the 18 Century. It is made up of extensive meadows, wildlife ponds, wetland areas, managed scrub land and many ancient/veteran trees, the site being managed as a historic parkland for nature conservation.
For cyclists, horse riders and pedestrians the surfaced path provides a green traffic free route, linking the north west of the borough with Fairlop.
A natural play area, woodland art trail and outdoor gym are the latest attractions. A way-marked nature trail has already been established with corresponding leaflet.
