The Green Park site was once an area of low-lying, poor quality agricultural land, lying in the flood plain of the River Kennet. In its development, we have created a wide range of natural habitats which support a diverse variety of birds, animal and wildlife.
Wildlife & Environment
Green Park partners with the Berkshire and South Bucks Bat Group and the Bat Conservation Trust to monitor the Bat Detectors and Bat Sounds Monitors we have installed around the Park. We have over 50 Bat Boxes around the Park.
There’s a wealth of birds to spot around Green Park, particularly around Longwater Lake. Comorants, Grey Herons, Greylag Geese, Blackbirds and Mallards are just a few which make Green Park their home.
Herb gardens are an essential part of culinary, medicinal and homemaking materials. In everyday talk, a herb garden is a planting of plants used for either flavouring or for medicinal use, often for both.
Green Park welcomed tenants in November 2014 when our worm farm was inhabitated by 22,000 Dendrobaena Veneta worms. These worms are particularly good when composting as they can consume up to 80% of their body weight per day and produce a 100% organic material for use elsewhere.
