Woodland Walk to be created in Springfield Park
To increase accessibility to Springfield Park, a woodland walk is being created along the top of the bank of the Liverpool Loopline.
The Woodland Walk will comprise of a new path accessible to wheelchair and pram users and those with visual impairments. It will also include Forest School areas and seating, which will be used to deliver Forest School sessions with local primary schools and an edible planting trail.
To create areas for this woodland walk, there will be a small amount of tree removal taking place in the park. Most of the trees being removed are dead or diseased. Following their removal, native species and additional trees will be replanted in other areas of Springfield Park.
The work will be delivered in partnership with Lancashire Wildlife Trust; a registered charity dedicated to protecting wildlife and natural habitats throughout Lancashire, Manchester and North Merseyside.
