The Wetlands Nature Reserve is a culmination of several years of planning, design and construction, with two main principles reasons. To act as natural flood defence mechanism and to create a new and diverse natural habitat, for all to enjoy.
The Wetlands covers a 6.1 hectare site, bordered by the River Cam to the east and the London - Cambridge railway line to the west.
The Reserve consists of a mix of habitats, including naturally filled ponds, wet grassland, wet woodland, riverbank habitats, shrubs and individual specimen trees. The creation of these areas will help contribute to local wildlife targets for the county as a whole.
