MEADOW PARK

Wild flower "ribbon" in Oak Meadow, sowed in Autumn 2011, just before the Great Flood, which washed a lot of it away. A little seed had been kept back just in case, so that was added, and now the result is spectacular, and very popular with our butterflies and other insects.

Meadow Park is almost eighteen hectares of open countryside which used to be farmed by the Kirk family. In 1995, they gave the land to the village to be a permanent leisure facility for local residents and it is now owned by Rushcliffe Borough Council. The Borough Council retains responsibility for maintaining the park boundaries and for any major work which may become necessary, but since 2009 the day to day management of the park has been in the hands of East Leake Parish Council.
