A mile of English Oak that has been on a transforming journey across the Eastern Expansion areas of Broughton and Brooklands. The project started at Broughton Fields School and was moved to four other places along the way and at each point leaving a ‘parcel’ made of oak. A piece of sculpture left from the project can be found in Broughton Gate off Watercress Way along with pieces by play park in Brooklands off Broughton Grounds Lane.

    Brooklands Meadow - park.jpg

    While The Parks Trust maintains Brooklands Meadow Park it is not yet officially our land and is currently owned by Places for People. A modern, well thought out flood retention site with a dam structure, it ensures the surrounding houses don’t flood in times of heavy rain. As the area develops, there are plans for this park to link up with the other linear parks nearby.

    Refreshments
    There are no facilities available on site but a pub can be found nearby in Broughton.
