Market Bosworth Country Park has a fine open parkland landscape with majestic mature specimen trees interspersed with small areas of woodland.  The park also includes the Bow Pool and a series of ponds.

This parkland habitat is now a rare landscape type in the ever changing English countryside.  Its specimen trees, grassland, woodlands and water areas provide varied and diverse habitats for a wide range of insect, plant and animal species.
