Biodiversity

Foulksmills Park is located on the banks of the river Corach. Along the river you may see wild ducks, granny cranes, mink, trout, kingfisher and lots more. The park is surrounded by native trees and the park is planted with a variety of scrubs, plants, and flowers. We have pollinator boxes in the Park.  There are apple trees in the Park, kindly gifted to us by Wexford Council County.

A large bug hotel with a grass top garden is a haven for bugs, insects, and bees. Mug bug hotels made at the upcycling workshops from old mugs/cups are located in the trees around the park. Log piles provide the perfect home for invertebrates, small mammals and amphibians. Areas of the park are left to grow wild as bee pollination areas. Birdboxes for Robins, Blue/Great Tits, Starlings and Spotted Flycatcher are located in the trees.
