Wildlife Areas

Wildlife Display Garden

A new wildlife garden has been constructed in the Promenade Park as a joint project between the Essex wildlife trust, friends of the Promenade Park, Maldon in Bloom working party and Maldon District Council. The display garden was created to show householders what they can achieve to help wildlife in a small, typical, suburban garden. The garden was made possible as a result of a awards for all grants, donations from local businesses and a lot of hard work from dedicated team of volunteers, who currently maintain gardens.

In December 2008 the garden was highly commended in Maldon District Council's design and conservation award under the Nature Conservation category. The judges thought that the project posed great potential for public education and benefit to wild life. The judges said that the layout of the garden was impeccable and the new interpretation boards were well designed and informative, commenting ‘it is a little gem that deserves to be seen’.

Wildflower Verges

In November 2008, members of the Maldon in Bloom working party met to sow Red Campions and Ox-eye daises along a stretch of Maldon bypass as part of a long-term project to have wildflowers blooming along the ring road and to attract insects and birds to the area and to improve the entrance to the town. This was the second phase of the project and an area will be sown each year.
