Noddle Hill Nature Reserve

Based on Noddle Hill Way, Noddle Hill Nature Reserve is a hidden gem in North Hull. Home to a tranquil nature reserve and walking routes as well as a scenic fishing lake, the site also contains a children's play area and sports pitches.

The nature reserve is perfect for a leisurely family walk at all times of year where you can view a variety of species of wildlife as the seasons change.

The nature reserve and fishing lake are both accessible via Bransholme Road, and the children's play area and sports pitches are accessible via Noddle Hill Way.
