Welcome to our Tiny Forest

Wolverhampton's first Tiny Forest was planted on 10 March 2021 in Oak Street park. It was planted by local contractors and school children from Merridale Primary School and was part-funded by the OVO Foundation and the City of Wolverhampton Council. The design features an outdoor classroom area for use by both local schools and community members. Children from Merridale Primary have chosen an individual tree to look after and monitor and will be able to watch it grow over time.
