Stanton Park

The Park contains a Scheduled Ancient Monument- the site of a Roman Villa (although there are no visible remains).

It is the holder of a Green Flag award, which describes it as an 'inspiring and largely unspoiled example of a country park'. Nature Reserve status was also acquired for 36 hectares of the park that includes the lake, woodland and grassland.

Stanton Park is wholly owned by Swindon Borough Council.

The Council's Ranger Team manages the park with the help of the Volunteer Rangers and other interested groups.

The park provides an exceptionally wide range of habitats, such as:

  • Remnants of ancient woodland
  • Hedgerows
  • Wildflower meadows
  • Wetlands
  • A lake, streams and a series of recently restored ponds
  • Over 900 species of fungi
  • A mixture of mature, specimen hardwood trees
These habitats are home to a correspondingly large variety of life, including:
  • Birds of prey
  • Wildfowl
  • Amphibians
  • Invertebrates
  • Large mammals (including roe deer and badgers)
  • Owls
  • Bats
  • Moths
