Composers Park is a fantastic local resource of important colourful wildflower meadows surrounded by hedgerows and trees rich in wildlife.
It already has a play area, five-a-side kickabout and benches for quiet enjoyment of the park, with recent improvements including a spectacular new entrance to the park from Watford Road. More information about the park can be found in our leaflet.
Heritage Lottery Funding
We are delighted to announce that we were awarded funding from the Heritage Lottery to deliver improvements to the park. The project was be delivered by the Countryside Management Service in conjunction with us.
Improvements included vegetation reduction, tree work, improved entrances, pond improvements, better signage and interpretation, along with new features such as benches and more challenging play equipment for older children. Wildlife will benefit from new native hedgerows and restoration of old hedgerows, clearing invading scrub to uncover meadow wildflowers and thinning tree plantations to benefit birds.
Further details be found in our project summary and site plan.
The first phase of the project was the installation of a large climbing unit which is located next to the basketball hoop, behind the existing play area.
The completion of these improvements were celebrated at an opening event in December 2014.
