Environmental sustainability

Here's some of the ways we minimise our impact on the environment at Lloyd Park

  • We use peat-free compost
  • We don't use herbicides or pesticides
  • We have lots of recycling bins and cycle racks
  • We use a biomass boiler to provide hot water and heating in the buildings
  • We have green roofs on the Aveling Centre and Community Bowls Pavilion
  • We use electric leaf blowers as much as possible
  • We compost as much green waste as possible
  • The new buildings are highly insulated
  • We used recycled materials during the 2012 restoration of the park

We also maintain and improve the park in a way that maximises biodiversity; and the Lloyd Park Sharing Heritage Group undertake several annual biodiversity surveys, so we can measure how well we're doing.
