This beautiful country park contains a diverse range of habitats and is managed both for people and for its precious wildlife. There are some fantastic walks through ancient woodland and historic deer parks which lie close alongside recently planted woodland and a landscape of small pastures. Thorndon Countryside Centre is managed by Essex Wildlife Trust and the Park is managed by Essex County Council in a joint venture.

Gruffalo Trail

Come and see the original Gruffalo Trail - a self-led trail around the woods, searching for carvings of the Gruffalo characters. Gruffalo Activity Maps are available from the Countryside Centre, at a cost of 50p. The countryside centre offers some unique gifts and books, a separate education room, refreshments and displays. There are regular activities for children, schools and families.

Few areas offer such variety as Thorndon country park and its surroundings. Ancient woodland and historic deer parks lie close alongside recently planted woodland and a landscape of small pastures, while nearby is the high forest of Hartswood and former common land. Thorndon Country Park is in two parts, the northern section on a gravel ridge and the southern part on clay soil lower down. The two parts are now linked by Old Thorndon Pastures, which is farmland that has been restored to a traditional farming landscape with small hedged fields, grazed by cattle.

Thorndon Country Park North

In spring, the woodlands of Thorndon North are filled with the scent and colour of bluebells, anemones and other woodland flowers. The woods are rich in birdlife and attract many species of migrant and over-wintering birds including bramblings, siskins and redpolls. Childerditch Pond is both beautiful and tranquil. Please note: Thorndon Country Park North car park is the best way to access the Gruffalo Trail.

Thorndon Country Park South

The open parkland at Thorndon South is busy with families enjoying barbecues and picnics, whilst drinking in views reaching out across countryside and into the heart of Canary Wharf. It's a great place to fly a kite.

Thorndon Country Park offers a variety of habitats including ancient woodland, parkland, ponds, a marsh and meadow. There are some stunning ancient trees including Giant Oak and Hornbeam pollards, that are reminders that this was once a deer park. Parts of it used to be heathland, now a scarce habitat in Essex, and to restore it parts of the park, both north and south, are being grazed by goats and sheep.

The park attracts a large number of woodland birds and sees more than its fair share of passage migrants and winter visitors. For example, large flocks of Siskins and Redpolls often gather in the birches, and bramblings can be seen near to the centre feeding on beech mast. There are many butterflies to be enjoyed including the uncommon Purple and White-letter Hairstreaks.

The park is managed by Essex County Council's Ranger Service who are returning Conifer plantations to grassland or woodland as mature trees are harvested. The Countryside Centre in Thorndon Park North was built just after the 1987 hurricane and fallen timber from a number of Essex Wildlife Trust nature reserves was used in its construction. It is the Trust's most popular centre with over 100,000 visitors per year, and provides refreshments, a gift shop, displays and interpretation.

The staff were very helpful and cheery at the Cafe and Gift Shop. My 4 year old daughter LOVED the Gruffalo Trail and has already asked when can she go back and visit. The food is slightly over priced for what you get but to be honest we didn't mind paying it as it was a lovely day out. Would... 更多

Fab walk with my 3 year old, 1 Year old and our dog. Set out in a manageable distance for my 3 year old to manage on his bike without getting tired legs. Both kids loved finding all of the Gruffalo characters and having their pictures taken with them. The visitors centre is great. Only downside is the parking is... 更多

Parked at other Thorndon and walked to the Gruffalo Thorndon for a spot of lunch. Got there and they weren't serving hot food as they were too busy. Bearing in mind it was half term I would have thought that management would have prepared for this and had more staff as the poor lady and man were trying to do... 更多

A wonderful space to stroll around in gazing at trees, watching birds fly whilst simply enjoying time in a green paradise. Recommedn for anyone and everyone to spend at least an hour a week here.

This is a lovely park to come to with the family for an afternoon walk or, in warmer weather all day with a picnic. The 'Gruffalo Trail' is a great attraction for parents with small children which is a winding trail through the woods to discover carved wooden models of all the animals in the Gruffalo story. Little maps are... 更多

A favourite of mine to take the children and the dogs for some fresh air and a lovely walk . There's also a dog training obstacle course there and a cafe - great for some snacks and a coffee .

Enjoyable walk around the park. Good if you have large dogs that need to be let off the lead. Shame you have to pay for parking... it a bit expensive as well.

Guffalo trail is great fun for the kids. Parking is expensive and since the cafe was refurbished it's also now more pricy.

This is a place to enjoy the great outdoors. Walk, cycle or meander. Stop at the Visitor Centre first of all to see what is on there and pick advice on what to visit in the park, they often have special events. The Gruffalo is great for kids and adults alike. Do walk into the woods and don't just stay... 更多

Made a visit with my two young children. The gruffalo trail was lots of fun. Wished we could've stayed longer for a look round the whole park but the trail did last us an hour. The only complaint I have is that there is not a single bin I saw throughout the woods. I also noticed other people not paying... 更多
