Snibston Country Park
The grounds of Snibston Discovery Park form a mini Country Park covering over 40 hectares of mixed habitats. The grounds include the former colliery spoil heap which has been reclaimed to form woodland and an open rough grassland area.
At the heart of the Country Park is the Grange Nature Reserve. Once the gardens of the Colliery Manager, it is now an important ecological site for wildlife. The Grange Nature Reserve became Leicestershire County Council’s first Local Nature Reserve in May 1993.
All our parks are open every day. Beacon, Watermead North and Market Bosworth Country Parks car parks allow entry from 7am each morning until dusk. We do not permit overnight parking or camping.
Snibston Country Park is adjacent to the museum off Ashby Road, Coalville, LE67 3LN. Take the first left after the museum car park and follow the signs to the nature reserve
