Maze Park is a green oasis right at the centre of the Teesside. Visitors can climb one of its landscaped mounds to enjoy panoramic views of the conurbation.  Much of the site has been planted with a variety of broad-leaved trees and is rapidly forming a surprising area of woodland for such a central urban location.
Glades and open grassland within the reserve have attracted more than 12 species of butterfly including the increasingly scarce grayling and dingy skipper. The steep river banks provide nesting habitat for a small colony of sand martins and give excellent views of common and grey seals which prey on salmon preparing to negotiate a passage through the Tees Barrage.

Why not combine your visit with an exciting watersports experience, or head over to Air Trail to climb the UK’s biggest high ropes adventure course…

More information on the wildlife to look for can be found on the Maze Park Tees Wildlife website.
