Greenhead Moss Community Nature Park

Greenhead Moss Community Nature Park is situated to the east of Wishaw town centre

Perchy Pond LNR

Greenhead Moss Community Nature Park is a 100ha site consisting of many different habitats including ponds, wildflower meadows, remnant raised peat bog, old and new woodlands. These habitats are home to mammals including badger, roe deer and fox with many insects and birds present. Many of these species are included in our Local Biodiversity Action Plan.

There is a good  path network throughout the site. Most paths are tarmac and accessible for wheelchairs and pushchairs.

Conservation volunteers meet weekly to carry out a range of conservation tasks to help enhance the Nature Park and surrounding sites.  

Perchy Pond within the Park was designated as a Local Nature Reserve (LNR) in 1989 by Motherwell District Council to protect the pond from future development. In 2013, the remainder of the Greenhead Moss Park was designated as an LNR.

We sometimes hold events at our LNR's - have a look at our What's on page to see if there are any soon.
