Woodland Wildflower Planting at Everton Park

Posted by on Nov 19, 2014 in News

On Saturday 15th November, we celebrated the newly installed benches, bin, bollards, tree works and general tidy up of the Woodland Walk with a wildflower planting event, to bring colour and spring sparkle to this less used part of the park.  It was a lovely, relaxing event organised by The Cass Foundation and Friends of Everton Park.  Lots of enthusiastic volunteers turned up and everyone worked really hard, fuelled by tea and biscuits and the good company!

We planted lots of different species of woodland wildflowers including forget-me-nots, bluebells (native of course!), foxgloves, cowslips, wood rush and sedges and also some large bags of daffodil bulbs for spring colour.  We are really looking forward to seeing Conway Street entrance in bloom next year and, hopefully, this is just the start of wildflower additions to the woodland walk.

The improvements to the woodland walk in Everton Park were kindly funded by a grant from Veolia Environmental Trust and Liverpool City Council and completed by September.  EAT Landscape managed the landscape contract on behalf of The Cass Foundation and in partnership with Friends of Everton Park.

Below is a lovely photo of the team of volunteers after we’d completed all the hard work!
