Mosswater Local Nature Reserve is best accessed by foot from Hope Park Drive north of Blackwood round-about.

After several years of work to improve this site for wildlife and people Mosswater has been designated a Local Nature Reserve.

The young woodland and floodplain grassland to the north of Broadwood have been radically improved to maximise their value for local biodiversity. Larger ponds with shallow mud edges have been created for waterfowl and wader birds. Small ponds have been created as habitat for frogs and newts. Deep flooded ditches have been dug to support a water vole population. Nest boxes have been erected to attract breeding or roosting barn owl which historically inhabit this area.

In spring 2012 an accessible surfaced path network was created through the woodland up to the viewpoint which overlooks the wetland, and also around the marsh on the east of the site to allow Hopepark residents easy access to the reserve.

Mosswater LNR's young woodland, new ponds and path network are easily visible from the Edinburgh-Glasgow train (two minutes after leaving Croy station towards Glasgow - look out the left hand window).
