Upton Country Park is a former colliery site that is now mainly open grassland, with several ponds and an area of woodland. Part of the site sits on Magnesian Limestone, which produces some interesting wildflowers in late spring and early summer. In 2008 it was designated as a Local Nature Reserve.
