In 2008 Herne and Broomfield Parish Council began a project to create a Community Woodland Park on a former landfill site. A regional competition standard BMX track has been constructed, which is the first of its kind in Kent. This project also provides the local community with a quality public open space with opportunities for informal recreation, enjoying wildlife, and enjoying the view.
Tree and hedge planting has been carried out and is establishing well. The site receives support from Kent County Council, Entrust, SERCO, and the city council.
