Technology and trees in Castle Park, Frodsham
The popular tree trail in Castle Park, Frodsham now has added technology, with QR codes alongside the trees, so visitors find out more about the nature around them.
The first tree of the 19 trees in the trail is an impressive Copper Beech near the entrance which is approximately 200 years old.
The trail then winds around the park and covers both old and young specimens, like the Small Leaved Lime, with heart shaped leaves, which was planted in honour of our late Queen.
To find out more about a particular tree, visitors just need to scan the QR code on the post next to the tree with the camera on their smartphone. Then, tap the link that appears and information about the tree appears on the screen.
Leader of the Council and Cabinet Member for Wellbeing, Councillor Louise Gittins said:
There are actually two trails around the park arranged by Cheshire West and Chester Council and the Castle Park Trust. Both a tree and a sculpture trail.
Last year, award-winning tree carver, Simon O’Rourke was commissioned to create some outstanding wooden sculptures around the park. Featuring bees, spiders, honeycomb, lavender and foliage, they tell the story of Matilda the Bee… and some very naughty wasps.
