Much of the nature reserve is accessible for wheelchair users and pushchairs. In the winter months some paths may be muddy and have puddles.

The Willowbrook shopping centre is just over 100 metres away, opposite the leisure centre.

Community support

The nature reserve is cared for by the Three Brooks nature conservation group and Bradley Stoke Green Gym. They are made up of a group of residents who help us manage the reserve.

They organise a range of events and practical workdays to help raise awareness of the nature reserve and to enhance its biodiversity.

You can find out more or contact the conservation group on their Three Brooks nature conservation group Facebook page.


There is a rich mix of habitats that provide a valuable place for wildlife by providing food and shelter. Wildlife in the Three Brooks nature reserve includes reed buntings, great crested newts, and slow worms.
