08.07.11 – Urmas Lansoo on site
Today Urmas Lansoo, the well know Estonain botanist, visited the Oxford Park site and has been advising on plants, animals and the lifecycles in the area, adding to our educational knowledge and educational boards to be made available on site. Urmas told us, “Normally developers only ask us how we can cut down the most trees, it is really unique that a developer is asking for more information to improve the area”. We are considering both the built and the natural environment in great detail and consulting with the top experts in order to continue to make Oxford Park the most enjoyable living environment and business environment in Northern Europe. Urmas said, “Congratulations, you have chosen a really fertile and attractive area for your project. There is a huge range of species on the site.”
18.06.11 – Creation of educational and Children’s areas
Summary: Work has started on creating the Oxford Park educational trails and Children’s areas. The “Witches Path” has been created in the forest located in the Oxford Park Children’s Natural Playscape area. This is a secret, winding path between the trees with hidden entrances and exits, climbing trees and ancient stone piles that children can find, explore and play in, imagining Witch Hazel who keeps her Home at the end of the Path. In additional, the Fox’s path was started. A series of educational trails through the forests are being created for both children and adults. People may enjoy walking, jogging or cycling through the forest on these trails, sit in glades and follow the lifecycle of the local animals and plants. These are signposted and explained in informational boards along the trail.
All paths and trails are made from natural materials which were already present on site. No new materials are imported, nor are they removed.
