Sensory Garden

The Sensory Garden is a relatively recent addition to the park and arguably a significant asset to the town as a whole. A unique sculpture of a hand supporting an apple is situated at the centre of a range of beds stocked with a very broad and interesting range of plants provided to stimulate the senses and interests of all visitors - not just the visually impaired. It is a very special place to visit, contemplate and enjoy, whatever the time of year.

The River Witham bisects the town and forms the backbone to our "Riverside Walk" which effectively links Wyndham Park to the town's other public parks, Queen Elizabeth and Dysart. This connectivity provides a natural wildlife corridor and a home for a broad range of wildlife including; birds, insects, fish, rodents, foxes, crayfish and bats.

Working farm

Wyndham Park has a working farm sited on the neighbouring land. Whilst the farm is under the care and ownership of the National Trust, it's an interesting facility to have as a neighbour and one that prompts debate, especially when the cattle are out grazing.
