Work has started on the Children’s Sensory Garden
Construction has started on the Children’s Sensory Garden outside Tropical World. The first stage is the erection of the willow tunnel shown in the picture
- The interactive garden will aim to provide a fun and relaxed space in which children and adults visiting the park will be able to enjoy and to encourage natural play and a sense of discovery.
- The Parks team identified a suitable area that was prone to shade and difficult to plant and would be best suited to paths, tactile planting and willow trails.
- The Little Friends team worked with Kingdom Gardens, a local garden landscaping company, to design the L-shape piece of land into an attractive area for children and adults.
- The area will encompass various different zones in which learning and nature can be freely explored, it will be planted with colourful and tactile planting; with plenty to see and smell, as well as encouraging wildlife.
