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.

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
