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. Central Forest Park is next to the City Centre, and has the Stoke Skate Plaza - Europe's largest street style skate park. There is also a safari-themed adventure play area and boulders to climb!
