Plantation Waters, Off Plantation Road, Accrington
Peel Park is a large and varied site situated close to Accrington town centre that is approximately 88 hectares in size. It occupies land between Burnley Road (the A679), the A56 and Plantation Road and includes The Coppice area. The site contains many features and habitats of interest including open moorland, reservoirs, deep valleys and the remains of several quarries and landfill sites.

Peel Park also has an extensive footpath/bridleway network but this is in need of improvement and although popular with local residents the site has the potential to be used more widely by people throughout East Lancashire and beyond.
