We loved visiting the Bumblebee Trail and Wildflowers at Elms Park in Bracknell, it’s just so pretty and it’s lovely to see the happy bees enjoying the wildflowers.
Why was the Bumblebee Trail and Wildflower areas created?
Bracknell Forest Council and Bracknell Forest Town Council have worked together in 2023 to improve the biodiversity at Elms Park which is located near Bracknell Town centre. Alongside the wildflowers and Bumblebee Trail they have also planted new trees to create a community orchard and parkland tree avenue.
Tell me more about the Bumblebee Trail
There are wooden signs around Elms Park which point to the wildflower areas – there some wildflowers near the road and then a larger area at the bottom of Elms Park, which has large paths cut through. This is great at it allows you to see the flowers and take photos without you actually needing to distrub or touch the flowers. It is also lovely to see the bees enjoying the flowers too.
Near the larger group of wildflowers you can also see the new trees which have been planted.
What else is at Elms Park?
At Elms Park you can enjoy the open field. There are also some picnic tables dotted around and a play area with outdoor gym equipment. There is also a teenage shelter and basket ball area.
You will also see the sculpture ‘Swing, Skate and Star’ by Lydia Karpinska. The sculpture was erected in 2009 to mark the 60th anniversary of Bracknell’s designation as a New Town.
Where can I park?
There is a small car park which can be found at RG12 2EW, just outside is also street parking.
Here is the What 3 Words address for the car park.
