Trees of the Park

If you have been in the Park in recent months you might have noticed that some of the trees have a QR code located nearby.

 When read, using a smart phone, the QR code will direct you to this site and to a page giving information on the tree you are by.

You can follow the links below to see the information already in place and more will be added soon.

2015 Autumn tree walk

A nice crisp autumn day saw around thirty people gathering at the Sunburst Gates entrance at the start of our Autumn Tree Walk.


With Robert sharing his knowledge ably assisted by Ingrid and Lis everyone learnt something about the trees in the Park and enjoyed the stunning colours many were beginning to show.


The Paxton Plane tree is thought to be the oldest tree in the park and would possibly have been here when Joseph Paxton laid the park out over 170 years ago. Today there are many young trees around the park of which the Friends have planted over 3000 in the past 10 years.


Why not come and join us on our next walk?

Trees form a large part of the beauty and landscape of Princes Park so it important to keep them in good health and to continue planting new ones to replace those which have died. Remember that the Park was opened over 175 years ago so those which have survived have had to put up with a lot.


The Friends are grateful to all the volunteers who came along on cold winter days to plant, trim, cut down and generally tidy up the tree areas, thank you all.


We run these volunteer days most winters so do keep an eye on our events page if you would like to come along and help. There is always someone who will show you what to do, some good company and excellent refreshments!
