Park Moss is a quiet broadleaved woodland in a lovely rural setting near the Arley Hall estate in North Cheshire. The canopy is dominated by silver birch with some mature oak alder and sycamore. Ferns, bracken and bramble make up the majority of the ground layer, with some localised patches of woodland flowers and plants.

A network of permissive paths wind through the wood, all of which are unsurfaced and can become very wet in winter. The wood is a peaceful refuge for wildlife and home to a variety of birds and animals. The more open sunny rides attract butterflies and insects in the summer.
