    Description

    This site was once part of a larger sports field which included what is now Glenfield Wildlife Meadow across the A50. When the site was divided by the road re-alignment, both sites were made public open spaces. Millennium Green is managed by a trust and includes play areas as well as some natural planting to encourage wildlife. It includes a small raised sensory garden.
