Queen Elizabeth Park Meadow Creation

Areas like Queen Elizabeth Park, found in urban settings are ideal for wildflower meadow creation, providing the opportunity to establish beautiful and beneficial local native flora for both wildlife and the community to benefit from, creating an aesthetic area to enjoy and engage with. 

As the area is so ideally situated within Grantham, part of the intended works will transform one section from low-quality grassland into a wildflower meadow, introducing an amazing diverse and colourful landscape that will flourish over time.

Location of proposed wildflower meadow creation in Queen Elizabeth Park

Friends of Queen Elizabeth Park are already in the process of developing wildflower meadows in another area of Queen Elizabeth Park, allowing this new habitat and meadow creation to add to their hard work.

Wildflower meadows are so important because they support such a diverse range of species, varying from insects and butterflies to birds and small mammals. As well as providing shelter for local animals, they help to make up the bottom of the food chain, sustaining larger wildlife and humans.

This page will be updated regularly as the projects develop. For more information about wildflower meadow creation and their benefits click here.
