Temporary measures to enhance wildflower meadow

Heavy use of the popular Warwick park combined with a cold start to the spring has prompted Warwick District Council’s Green Space team to take action to help the re-establishment of the wildlife meadow in St Nicholas Park.

During the months of lockdown, the area has been trampled by walkers and the low temperatures during April have made it difficult for the plants and flowers to grow. Therefore to give the meadow a fighting chance for the summer, the Council has temporarily erected two sections of fence to encourage walkers to use the short-mown grass for a short period until the ground recovers.
