The hillsides offer wonderful views across the town and towards
the Dorset hills. Wildlife in the park includes bats, water
voles, kingfishers, green woodpeckers, otters and a wide variety of
woodland and grassland flowers, tree species and fungi.
The park includes the areas known as Ninesprings, Penn Hill
Park, Summerhouse Hill and Riverside Walk. There are rivers, lakes,
waterfalls, open grassland, woodland and a children's play
There is a well established network of paths around the country
park, as well as a flat linear cyclepath which follows the line of
the old railway and links the different areas of the country
We welcome dogs to Yeovil Country Park, but please take notice
of the 'No dog zone' around the lake that is clearly identified.
This has been put in place in order to protect the wildlife on and
around the lake - there is an alternative path for dog walkers
around this area.
