Yeovil Country Park






Yeovil Country Park takes you on a journey around woodlands and waterfalls following the River Yeo to meadow pastures and far reaching views to the wider countryside.

The park has five main areas all of which have very different characteristics and land features. The landscape varies from Ninesprings which is the most heavily used and accessible section with its network of footpaths and waterways to the Riverside walk which gives the feeling of being away from the hustle and bustle of town as you stroll through woodland following the path of the River Yeo.

Take a look at our Projects


Penn Hill Wildlife Garden 


The ranger team are working with the Friends of Yeovil Country Park to restore the Community Wildlife Garden on Penn Hill.

During the covid pandemic, volunteering activity ceased at the country park, which meant that many jobs around the park were not able to be completed by the two rangers as work had to be prioritised. Unfortunately, the community wildlife garden has fallen into a state of disrepair.

The rangers are working with the Friends to improve biodiversity in this area as species such as dock, nettle and creeping buttercup are dominant. The Friends of Yeovil Country Park have applied for funding from the Wessex Water Foundation to improve the biodiversity through planting wildflowers (particularly focusing on nocturnal pollinators) repairing and restoring the pond and creating habitat piles and hibernaculums.  The outcome of the funding application will be published in September.

There are plenty of ways to get involved at Yeovil Country Park. Opportunities for volunteering include practical habitat management and park maintenance, species surveying, litter picking and fundraising at our community events. Our volunteers join us for all sorts of reasons: to keep fit, to learn about wildlife, for the social element, to do their bit for the local community, to look after a place they enjoy and love and to have fun.


Practical conservation volunteers


At Yeovil Country Park the Countryside Rangers lead two regular practical volunteering sessions a week.


Monday 1pm to 3pm; A Ranger led volunteer session focussed on carrying out lighter practical tasks such as litter picking, shrub and flower border upkeep and footpath maintenance.


Thursday 10am to 3pm; A Ranger led volunteer session which involves harder physical practical tasks such as fencing, woodland management, scrub management, tree planting, hedge laying and much more.


You do not need to have any experience to join in, just a willingness to get involved and a passion for nature.  The volunteer tasks are physical in nature so you will need to have a fairly good level of fitness.


UPDATE 12th January 2022

Unfortunately there are no vacancies within the volunteer team at this time.

Please check back for updates
