HOLT COUNTRY PARK.
Holt Country Park, a Green Flag award winner, is only a short walk from the historic market town of Holt on the edge of the Norfolk Coast Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty. The park has been many things over the years, including a horseracing course, heath, farmland, forestry, and woodland garden. It has now been developed into a tranquil woodland dominated with Scots Pine and native broadleaves. Its rich ground flora supports an abundant display of wildlife including Goldcrests, Greater Spotted Woodpeckers, Emperor Dragonflies and Deer. The park has been awarded a Green Flag Award every year since 2005. The park is very popular with schools and families where they can join in with environmental and arts events throughout the year.
