We, at Colworth Park, are delighted to let you know that the science park has won the Best Newcomer Wildlife Garden Award this year, in the Wildlife Gardening at Work Awards 2017.
The beautiful and peaceful parkland setting has long been a benefit to many businesses who have chosen to base themselves here at Colworth Park.
Receiving this award is a great reflection on the landscaping team, who have worked tirelessly to create and evolve an environment where people and wildlife thrive alongside each other, whilst maintaining our beautiful parkland setting. By changing the way we manage the grounds we’ve been able to create swathes of natural habitats for insects, birds and other wildlife.
Our large park covers 91 acres of rolling parkland and is maintained to encourage and sustain wildlife. The grass meadow is a haven for bees, butterflies and other insects, which also make use of the flower beds, trees and lawns. Little, barn and tawny owls are all breeding on the site, and the Sharn Brook cuts through the parkland, where staff members have spotted some fantastic water-loving creatures.
