Barnwood Arboretum Nature reserve In Barnwood Park

Barnwood Arboretum is a local nature reserve within Barnwood Park and belongs to Gloucester City Council. The arboretum has many mature trees and unimproved grassland, providing habitat for birds, insects and small mammals. The grass is managed by grazing rare breed sheep in the winter.
