Welcome to our Tiny Forest

Redbridge's first Tiny Forest was planted on 18 March 2021 in South Park. It was planted by local contractors (in line with Covid restrictions) and is being monitored and maintained by volunteers from the local community group 'South Park Users Group'. The design features an outdoor classroom area for use by both local schools and community members.
