The Natural Environment

Trees

A striking feature is  the substantial number of mature trees which form avenues  along the whole length of the Park and at main walkways across the park.  However,  consideration is being given to removing a proportion  to ensure the healthiness of the stock and to allow more light into the realm in order to promote other greenery and improve visibility.  Varieties include Beech; Large Leafed Lime; London Plane; Monterey Cypress; Gum Tree and Silver Birch.
