Biodiversity at Milton Park

Published on: 27/09/2019

We know from the recent 2040 Vision feedback that the green aspects of the Milton Park are highly valued and enjoyed by the Park community. 

As well as people benefiting from the great environment here, we want to ensure Milton Park remains rich and fruitful for the wildlife that inhabit it too. In particular, pollinating insects including our very own Milton Park bees.

 

DID YOU KNOW? We have two beehives at Milton Park!

 

By identifying certain areas on the Park that have species-rich grass we can provide a valuable food source for insects during the summer months. You will see many of these areas across Milton Park and may have previously wondered why they look slightly un-tidy compared to the usual clean lines of the landscaping here.

Specific areas of grass mixed with an attractive, colourful range of wildflowers will flower between the months of April and August and attract lots of insects. You will see the landscape team managing and mowing these areas around the edges to make sure the flowers stay put. At the end of the summer these areas will be mown as normal. 

The Milton Park team, landscape architects (ASA) and onsite landscapers (Nurture) are proud to bring the Park community closer to nature.

If you think there is an area near your building that can be used in a similar way, please get in touch with ASA.
