The Friends of Eaton Park exists to ‘help Eaton Park thrive’. The 80 acre site was built as a sports park but also takes in Bluebell Wood, extensive, wildlife-rich hedgerows, many stands of trees or smaller wooded areas which, having been planted in the mid-twentieth century, are now reaching maturity, and four meadows including a 1.5 acre meadow established in 2014 that already has an impressive range of wildflowers, grasses and invertebrates. The Friends champion the nature of the park, funding plants, tools, bird houses etc and undertaking conservation and gardening work to support biodiversity and carbon capture. We also organise walks and interpretation for children and adults to learn about park flora and fauna, and to raise awareness of our work to increasing biodiversity and carbon capture. We hope that our work will inspire the public to look at how they too can help with this vital work.
