Friends of Daniel Park

Daniel Park is a 5-hectare, Queen Elizabeth II Fields in Trust, multiple-use public amenity in Whitchurch. Once agricultural land, the Park is now largely managed for biodiversity, but also contains a skatepark, BMX track, kickabout and picnicking areas, and a community orchard. Since reseeding in 2008 the meadow areas have become home to many species of wildflowers, grasses, insects, mammals and birds, and are particularly popular with field voles which, in turn, attract predators such as kestrels and owls. The many copses similarly attract wildlife and are also home to varied types of fungi.

The Friends group is open to all who want to enjoy the benefits of fresh air and exercise and perhaps to learn more about conservation and wildlife. There is no joining fee and no previous experience of conservation work is needed.

Between September and April work parties take place on the second Sunday of the month and last a couple of hours. Visit the Friends of QEII Daniel Park Facebook page for details of upcoming events. Work includes hedgerow and tree maintenance, community orchard maintenance, keeping meadow areas clear of invading scrub, and helping Park users by spreading chippings over muddy ground at the entrances. Tools and instruction are provided.

Meet at 9:30am in the community orchard alongside Daniel Road, RG28 7LS.

We are a friendly group and would love you to join us whenever you can. Children (school age) are welcome as long as they are supervised by a parent or guardian.
