    Description

    Franklin Park Community Orchard was created in 2007 when Leicester City Council sold off 1.1 hectares of disused allotment space.  This has now been converted to a Community orchard, a wild flower meadow, a pond and two separate wild life areas.

    The area had been fields up until the late 1930's when new housing development started. However, as war was imminent no further house building took place and the field was turned over to the Ministry of Food. After the war the field was acquired by Leicester City Council for allotments.

    The site is only open at specific times of year in order to protect the wildlife that lives there.
