First of the new trees in Boultham Park

Councillor Bob Bushell planted a tree on 10th February to mark the start of the Boultham Park  Lake Restoration project, and to celebrate the Council’s commitment to the Woodland Trust Tree & Woodland Charter.

Representatives of Woodland Trust, Lincolnshire Wildlife Trust and Boultham Park Advisory Group were there to celebrate, alongside local residents, councillors and council officers.

The event launched the lake restoration project which has now started with tree removals and tree planting during February. If you’d like to join volunteers planting trees in Boultham Park please contact Al, our Volunteer Coordinator (details on the volunteering page).

We hope you can join us.



Lake Restoration Project – tree works – drop in session 4th February in the Cafe

Tree removals and replanting will take place in the park from 10th February. These works are necessary for the success of the lake restoration project. Trees are being removed where they are breaking through lake bank edges, where the tree is not a healthy specimen, and / or in order to let more light in to wooded areas.

We will replant at least as many trees as we remove.

Our plans are supported by Lincolnshire Wildlife Trust and are in accordance with the recommendations from the most recent Ecology Survey. The are part of our overall plans to improve biodiversity in and around the lake through this NLHF / City Council funded project.

If you’d like to know more about the tree works, we’re having a ‘drop in’ session in Boultham Park Café, Tuesday 4th February, 2-4pm.

If that time doesn’t suit you, get in touch with us and we’ll be happy to arrange a chat at your convenience.

Green Flag Raising

Cllr Bob Bushell (Portfolio Holder for Remarkable Place and Robert Pitchford (BPAG Chair)


The sun shone on the 24th July, when we raised the Green Flag in Boultham Park for the first time.

On the same day we celebrated flag raisings in Hartsholme Country Park and the Arboretum – both of which have held Green Flag status for many years. But for Boultham Park, this was a landmark occasion and there to share the moment were the council’s Portfolio Holder for Remarkable Place, members of the Boultham Park Advisory Group and local community, local ward councillors, staff from the council and Linkage Community Trust, and Continental Landscapes.

Thanks to everyone who joined in the ceremonies at all three parks, and especially to all those people who have contributed to the award – in particular our brilliant Park Advisory Groups and volunteers. We – genuinely – couldn’t have done it without you.
