The Crook O’Lune was opened on November 2004, and is situated very close to the city centre of Lancaster. This planting area is sited in one of the regions most splendid and beautiful areas and is steeped in history. The site overlooks the River Lune and clear magnificent views can be seen from every position along the Lune valley, especially from the custom built viewing platform, which is situated immediately adjacent to the car park and toilet areas.


The River Lune is home to Spotted-brown and Rainbow trout, as well as freshwater salmon which can be seen leaping into the air on many occasions. Immediately adjacent to the Life for a Life planting area is a wildflower conservation area and many migrant birds can be seen throughout the winter months some of which are quite rare species.


From the site, ramblers can continue up onto the Kirby and Longdendale trail. This section of the River Lune is part of the Millennium Park preservation scheme and is seen to be part of the expansive Trough of Bowland Park which is also renowned for its outstanding natural beauty.
