We spend more of our time at work than we do at home, which is why, here at Broadland Business Park, we strive to provide a relaxing environment for you to enjoy, whether it is an early morning run or a leisurely stroll at lunchtime around the lake.
There is a hive of wildlfe activity at Broadland Business Park. Considerable effort has been taken to encourage a diverse habitat, evident by the installation of bat, bird and owl boxes around the Park. If you spend time sitting on one of the park benches around the lake you will notice an abundance of wildlife, especially in the spring and summertime. Moorhens, wagtails, magpies, mallards, foxes, rabbits and even a heron are regular visitors to the lake. The moorhens and ducks return annually to breed, as does our pair of swans, so look out for chicks in April/May.
A few years ago, we had a resident otter who enjoyed the abundance of fish in the lake and if you're lucky you may even get to see the Kingfisher which has been spotted a number of times around the lake.
In addition to the birds and mammals that frequent the lake, there is also a plethora of insects, including damselflies and dragonflies, which all add to the rich tapestry and the ecological diversity at Broadland Business Park.
If you want a quiet place of contemplation there is the Memorial Gardens on Memorial Way, home to a Polish War Memorial.
The landscaping at Broadland Business Park is designed to integrate the developments within the existing landscape whilst introducing flora and fauna that would attract native species and encourage the establishment of a variety of habitats. A tree survey is carried out annually to assess the health of the trees and any trees that require felling are replaced to ensure the consistency of tree lines and woodland copses.
Paul Auger is our on site grounds manager who ensures the landscaping is maintained to a high standard for you to enjoy.
