This popular community park in the heart of Heaton is a nature and wildlife haven.
The large wildflower meadow and pond is thriving with wildlife and a great spot for pond dipping. The willow arch as you approach the pond is a stunning feature of the park.
The wetland area attracts many species of birds, insects, frogs and bats and the community orchard is maintained by the Friends of Iris Brickfield and Groundwork.
There are two play areas for families and plenty of open grassy areas for a kick about. The network of footpaths makes the park a popular spot for dog walking and with runners.

Parts of Iris Brickfield once belonged to East Heaton Farm; this was one of a number of farms in Heaton in the eighteenth and nineteenth centuries.
