The park officially opened in 1995 providing local people with the experience of the countryside on their doorstop. Eastbrookend is available for everyone to enjoy and visitors to the country park can partake in a range of recreational activities, including angling.
The land was formerly used as a sand & gravel quarry and landfill site. Today, the Park is a mosaic of different habitats comprising open grassland, woodlands, marsh and lakes.
Set in the heart of the Park is the Millennium Centre, often described as an "environmentally friendly building of the future". The contemporary design, wind turbine system and solar panels make the Centre a unique and interesting place to visit.
The Millennium Centre is also the home of the Ranger Service, who organise a wide variety of events and activities for the public. The Rangers are on hand to provide advice and information for visitors.
