We have redone the Dino Trail. I have possibly gone too far the other way and made them a bit too camouflaged. I will let your children be the judge. Please pass on their feedback. Just to remind you – there is a crude map in the tabs above (I will get this updated at some point) and every dino is by a bench with a white dino footprint on. There are nine to spot in total.
What we are trying to do is to create three wildflower glades. The idea being that as people walk along the path they suddenly find themselves in an open glade with a picnic bench and a load of wildlife to watch and enjoy.
This is the Potford Dam glade and is on embankment, rather that cutting, so has some lovely views across the heath.
These photos show the ends of the clearing, the actual clearing and the picnic bench and views. We have cleared out this year’s wildflowers and extended it. It worked really well this year and all the seeds will have dropped so next year should be even better
The benches vary greatly. Some are set up for groups and some for just one or two people. Some are picnic style and others just allow a rest.
Basically, we are trying to cater for as many different types of greenway user as possible.
