Oxford Urban Wildlife Group - who we are
Boundary Brook Nature Park is a secluded haven for urban wildlife, located just steps away from Larkrise and St Gregory’s schools, the East Ward allotments, and the much-loved Florence Park.
The park was born in 1990 out of the dedication of the Oxford Urban Wildlife Group (OUWG) – a group of community wildlife enthusiasts who rescued a plot of disused allotments to carve out a tranquil wild space in the heart of East Oxford.
Featuring mixed woodland, meadow, a nature pond and butterfly glade, Boundary Brook offers a unique diversity of habitats that are home to a rich variety of wildlife from birds and butterflies to frogs and foxes.
At a time when wild spaces and species are increasingly under threat, OUWG aims to inspire new generations to enjoy and continue to nurture this unique nature park on your doorstep for decades to come.
OUWG provides opportunities for practical conservation work, an inspiring educational space for school groups, and open days for the local community to learn more about the park and our resident wildlife.
