Wimbledon Cannizaro Park launches Nature Weekend 22 & 23 May 2021

 A great way to celebrate the return of spring and experience the wonder of nature with children is at Cannizaro Park’s inaugural Nature Weekend taking place on Saturday 22 and Sunday 23 May.

The Grade II listed park on the fringes of Wimbledon Common in south west London has launched the two-day celebration with a packed programme of activities for all ages.

Activities include guided bird and bat walks, potting and planting and nature trails. Families will be able to meet Fudge, a Shetland pony from neighbouring Wimbledon Stables.

Further details are available from here.

Cannizaro Park has a long history dating back to its years as part of the Duke of Cannizaro’s Estate and its transition to a public Park when Merton Borough Council adopted it in 1949. Its Grade II status is due to some of the rare and exquisite plants which are all around the park.

It has some superb trees and shrubs, which are attractive to both the horticulturalists and gardeners as well as those who come for a walk a picnic or simply to enjoy some peace and quiet in the many secluded areas of the park.
