St Mary’s Fields are maintained by a lively group of volunteers
meeting monthly, to manage and monitor the woodland and the grassland for the
benefit of the wildlife - including
walkers - and invertebrate habitat.
Orchard Park, Exeter Close, Park Hill, and Ron Groves recreation grounds have areas set aside for volunteers to grow their own vegetables in raised beds and recycled containers. In Park Hill, Lyne Road Green and Foxdown Close, and along the green corridors alongside cycle and alleyways through Chorefields the council has initiated a ‘no mow May’ programme, allowing wild flowers and grasses to grow up naturally, to attract more bees and insects. See our current plans to make Lyne Road Green a more attractive, biodiverse and secure setting. See also our page on Kidlington's Small Greens.
The Council works with the Kidlington Eco Group to promote and enable a wide range of ecological activities.
