The boundary between Harrow Weald Bus Garage and Harrow Weald Recreation ground Aka Boxtreepark. A great project for all sorts of reasons. 

The Metroline living wall is a unique convergence of nature, technology, recycling, education and wellbeing for humans and bugs alike. Once complete it will transform a section of the park into a living wall.  

This project will see technology, nature, recycling, education, and peaceful areas created.

This area, located between the bus garage and the park, offers a chance to install a living wall, using rainwater from local buildings, that will be stored in water butts.  This water will then be used to create a water feature and a pumping system to feed the wall, which will then cascade water onto several features, including a small pebble stream, which, in turn, will lead in to a pond.  Around this area will be the site of a bug and butterfly centre and peace garden.

Fun Aspects

With the installation of the bug centre and pond we hope to attract one single bug, not seen here for years but indigenous to our area. We expect and wish to see the first appearance within 3 years.

 

Partners and volunteers.

To achieve our aim we need the help of:

Builders and carpenters

People with a good knowledge of IT  - a whole host of disciplines will be used.  (We will have a gigabit connection to play with!)

Nature & Biodiversity people   

Reusable energy sources

       We also need supplies of useful building material

The goal:

To create some interesting live and interactive experiences for children of all ages (2 - 102), as well as placing  a special emphasis on people with ADHD, dementia sufferers and their carers, and people who want to meet other locals.

 

This project is part of our creating tomorrow's parks today goals.

The living wall will include seating and areas to relax in.

We will be including many interesting and different features that locals have highlighted as part of the Wildlife Watch Area Project

Updates will be added regularly.  To keep up to date, get our newsletter.

 

Nothing we do would happen without your support.

Whether you donate time and volunteer, provide supplies, local business involvement, or money donations, together they all make what we do possible.

 

Together we are creating tomorrow’s parks today!
