Maidenhead Town Moor was given a fresh new look at the start of 2009 with meadow grassland and planting of 150 trees. Footpaths next to York Stream have also been upgraded and widened to provide better access for pedestrians and cyclists.
Once the meadow grassland areas are well established it will make the Moor an even more attractive spot for a stroll and to enjoy nature. The site is a haven for wildlife and is part of the council's aim to preserve biodiversity in the Borough.
The improvements followed a public consultation which highlighted public support for more trees and wildflower planting. With the existing poplar trees on the site reaching the end of their life, it also gives the newly planted semi-mature trees at least a decade to become established before the poplars are felled.
Cllr Simon Dudley, lead member for adult and community services, is keen to encourage visitors onto the green space: "The Royal Borough is committed to providing quality open spaces and the work on Maidenhead Moor has certainly achieved that. This popular site close to the town centre is now a greener, more accessible and appealing site where visitors can relax and enjoy the natural surroundings."
