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. The Friends of Barnwood Arboretum are helping to develop and maintain the site and plant new trees as well as developing a wildflower meadow.
The Friends of Barnwood Arboretum are celebrating Barnwood Park and Arboretum’s success in being awarded a Green Flag for 2012/13. The Green Flag Award provides national recognition for the achievements of those whose hard work and dedication has helped to create high quality green spaces for all to enjoy.
Gloucester’s Barnwood Park and Arboretum is one of a record breaking 1424 parks and green spaces across the country to receive a Green Flag Award this year. The park is open all day every day.
