The Wild Grounds is a 28.2-hectare (70-acre) biological Site of Special Scientific Interest in Gosport in Hampshire. It is also a Local Nature Reserve, which is owned and managed by Gosport Borough Council.
This site was probably common land until around 1600, after which it developed into woodland dominated by oak trees. It is not rich in flora, but is of great interest ecologically and historically for its natural origin and its structure, being composed of old trees of uneven age which will be allowed to live their natural life span.
