About Durrockstock Park Local Nature Reserve

Durrockstock Park Foxbar, Paisley PA2 0AN

At the western end an old reservoir has transitional marshland forming a large expanse of open water which provides a variety of habitats for invertebrates, birds and amphibians. A Scots pine plantation on the eastern side was planted approximately 100 years ago and offers potential for biodiversity management.

There is a path around the periphery of the LNR and reservoir which visitors can easily access and there is limited street parking.
