Pretty as a picture

Our beautiful Wivenhoe Park is home to the University of Essex, Colchester Campus.

Our Grounds team love maintaining this wonderfully tranquil place for all to enjoy. Careful stewardship of the parkland means we're the proud holder of a Green Flag Award and the park was voted one of the top ten green spacesin the UK.

Sustainability is a core priority for the University and our Grounds team has focused on reducing chemical fertilisers, introducing new wildlife areas and installing a wide range of bird boxes, with much more to come in the future.
