Cove Brook Greenway is a leisure facility that runs along the brook; it was provided by Rushmoor Borough Council as an environmental initiative in the 1990s. In the mid-1990s, the Cove Brook Greenway environmental initiative began as a partnership between the Environment Agency, Rushmoor Borough Council and Hampshire Wildlife Trust. The Environment Agency did major works to re-naturalise the southern section of the brook, which was then running in an artificial concrete channel. Paths, a new bridge and dipping areas with safe access were installed, and the Cove Brook Greenway Group, a volunteer organisation that cares for the Greenway along the brook, was formed. Herons, kingfishers and several sorts of fish now frequent the brook.
