Welcome to our Tiny Forest

Meadow Lane's Tiny Forest was planted on 4 February 2021 by local contractors (in line with Covid restrictions). It is part of Meadow Lane Nature Park and is located close to the River Thames. This Tiny Forest was funded by the DEFRA Green Recovery Challenge Fund, in collaboration with Oxford City Council. There is an outdoor classroom area that can be used by both schools and local residents.
