Clyne Valley Country Park covers 110 acres of mixed deciduous woodland. It consists predominately of Oak, with some Birch, Beech and Sycamore. Much of which was felled during the last war and selective clearing has occurred since. The woodland provides a habitat for a wide range of birds, mammals and insects including Bats, Buzzards, Woodpeckers, Nuthatches, Foxes, Squirrels and Badgers. The beautiful Clyne Gardens are located within the Clyne Valley Country Park.
There is a cycle track crossing the centre of the valley, which links Blackpill with Gowerton. The cycle track and forms part of National Cycle Route 4 and passes close to the settlements of Killay and Dunvant. The route of the cycle track was once used by the Heart of Wales Line. Evidence of past industrial use is still evident along the cycle track. The wooded hillsides of the Clyne Valley have numerous dirt trails used for mountain biking and walks.
The Blackpill stream flows adjacent to the cycle track for most of its course. The Blackpill stream empties into Swansea Bay at Blackpill.

Green space is important in urban areas. They can sustain important communities of plants and animals, and can be vital for the health and well being of urban inhabitants.
Parks and gardens provide a focus point for communities, and have gained in importance as significant areas for conservation.
