Sensory garden

At the heart of the PARC lies the ever-evolving Sensory Garden with benches, flowers, spring bulbs, a bog garden, a woven willow hedge, fruit trees, a summerhouse and some stunning views.  

Volunteers have been developing the Sensory Garden since 2021 and we now have:

  • over 350 trees – including fruit trees
  • 6 benches with a trellis of scented climbers
  • 2 picnic tables 
  • a summerhouse with water capture and storage
  • a bog garden
  • a wildlife area made by KLB Horticultural Group
  • a woven willow hedge made by Volunteers
  • 2 sturdy mud kitchens made by Mens Sheds
  • a soft fruit garden
  • a snowdrop trail

and we plan to add:

  • accessible pathways
  • a checker board patio of brick, slab, gravel, plant and a fire pit
  • a wildlife pond
  • raised beds for flowers and vegetables
  • a willow tunnel and dens
  • a water stand pipe

And eventually we plan to develop on through to a children’s playground just next door.

We work in the Garden every Wednesday morning from 9.30 to 12.30, so do come and join us if you can.
