Improving your local community park
Building on our work in three Pilot Parks as part of our Future Parks project, eight more parks have been selected for our Nature Recovery project with the aim to help to create a nature recovery network across our local area.
We’ll increase habitat for wildlife to give animals, insects, and birds more options for homes and food and make it easier for wildlife to find places they can thrive.
We’ll be making physical improvements in the parks, delivering inspiring activities for residents to connect with nature on their doorstep, and empowering communities with opportunities to get involved.
Our survey on the park plans is now closed.
Thank you very much to everyone who completed the survey, we really appreciate you sharing your thoughts with us and we will take your feedback and suggestions on board.
Look out for changes being made in the parks, coming soon.

Wildflowers, bulbs, ponds and trees not only give our urban parks a pop of colour, they provide essential support systems for butterflies, bees and other wildlife. We’re on a mission to help wildlife recover. More than 70% of our butterflies have disappeared over the last ten years and some bee species are near extinction. In fact, the rate of extinction for insects is eight times faster than that of mammals, birds and reptiles.
Please donate today and help us plant more wild and native flowers across our parks so our butterflies and bees can flourish.
