Braunstone Town is a civil parish that is rich in parks and nature areas. 'Greening' this town is among the primary projects of the local community.
Volunteers and sponsors put their effort in making the mature woodlands much better for wildlife and the community. Among the many projects is the Highway Spinney which is between Hickley Road and Braunstone Lane.
Local parks include Mossdale Meadows, Merrileys Park, Holmfield Park, and Watercourse Walk among many others. The Osiers Nature Area has a pond and stream, and leads through mature woodland and into meadows. Admission is free, but travellers should adhere to the rules (taking photographs is okay, respect the wildlife, keep dogs under strict control, keep the area clean and leave only footprints).
Visiting Braunstone Town may not appeal to the business type of client, but it is a great destination for nature, wildlife, and 'open park' lovers. Families and groups are often the ones you will find visiting this town especially those who want to escape the busy city streets and usual tourist attractions which are often congested.
