Woodridge Nature Reserve is a 0.7 hectare Site of Local Importance for Nature Conservation.

It was designed as a nature trail for local primary schools, but became very neglected.

It lies predominantly on London clay, and comprises oak woodland and grassland. It was originally farmed as pasture, and is a haven for wildlife such as woodland birds, insects and amphibians.

The reserve is close to Folly Brook in Folly Brook Valley, a large area of woods and grassland which is public open space between Woodside Park and Totteridge. Access is by a kissing gate in a pasture area close to the Michleham Down entrance to the Valley.
