Welcome to our Tiny Forest

Blackpool's first Tiny Forest was planted in Mereside Open Space, on a sunny Friday in March 2022. Pupils from the local Mereside Primary School joined local councillors, residents, and staff from Blackpool Council's park ranger service to plant the Tiny Forest, which was then kindly watered in the following day by volunteers from the local fire and rescue service!
