Around the World in 12 Trees
Great Linford Manor ParkThursday 22 June
Did you know Great Linford Manor Park is home to a collection of exotic trees, known as an arboretum? Join our knowledgeable staff on this guided walk around the trees and hear stories about their origins and the folklore surrounding them. The walk will start at Great Linford Memorial Hall car park and staff will lead you into the arboretum, drawing your attention to different trees with exciting stories to be told.
The Great Linford arboretum was created in the 1990s by The Parks Trust. 30 years later, many of the trees are now reaching maturity and form a unique wooded area in the Manor Park. The arboretum is home to trees from across the world including species native to China, North America and Japan.
Through our National Lottery Heritage Fund project, we have drawn attention to the trees in the arboretum and labelled the specimens for public enjoyment.
This walk is suitable for adults. To get close to the trees, we will be walking on grass and there will be no footpaths available. A hearing loop is available from email@example.com.
