Risley Moss is managed by Warrington Borough Council.

Explore the Reserve on pathways winding through woodland and meadows. In general most of the paths are suitable for prams and wheelchairs. Sit and enjoy the sights and sounds of nature or join in a Ranger led event. Stop for a moment to watch butterflies and insects feeding in the meadows, or look into the underwater world of the ponds. Climb the Observation Tower for a panoramic view of the mosslands at tree top height, or spend a few minutes watching wildlife from the Woodland Hide – in winter you may see twenty or more different bird species.

A huge wooden newt, carved beech pillars and grass covered Mother Earth are just some of the inspiring natural sculptures created by artists and local people – you'll find them sited around the Reserve close to the main paths.
