Set in the heart of Watford, just a short walk from the town centre, TCV’s Cassiobury Park site is an ecologically diverse oasis of green for residents and visitors alike. Part of the park is a designated local nature reserve. We are delighted to be sharing the site with 46 different species of breeding birds, as well as seven of the 17 bat species native to the UK. Former watercress beds within the park have now been developed into marshland and muntjac deer and foxes can often be spotted in the woods.
Activities are varied and the Green Gym® works across diverse sites within the park. Recently, we constructed a large insect hotel wall to disguise the tool shed and provide habitat for invertebrates. Volunteers have also been planting wildflowers, bramble bashing, managing the orchard and using traditional scythes to cut meadow grass.
The Conservation Volunteers Green Gym® in Watford is delivered in partnership with the intu Watford Centre and Watford Borough Council.
