North Berwick Trust’s Park
North Berwick Trust Ltd (NB Trust) is a local charity working to help make North Berwick a great place to be!
North Berwick Trust owns 16 hectares of land to the south of North Berwick, off Haddington Road.
Within this area, 0.46 hectares is designated for ‘employment land’ by East Lothian Council.
This land is currently being managed as parkland, for our local community to enjoy for quiet recreation.
North Berwick Trust fund the ongoing maintenance of this land, including mowing paths, mending fences and supplying litter bins.
A public consultation was conducted in 2021 to inform the future short-term management of the park. 430 individuals completed the survey, which is a fantastic response. Thank you to all those who took the time to complete it. Your input into this community space is invaluable.
It has been wonderful to see the park gradually come alive. Thank you to all those volunteers who came along to tree planting and wild flower planting days. The young oak trees and risen tree saplings are developing really well and the park thrives over the summer with a variety of wildflowers. Purple vetch, oxeye daisies, buttercups and red clover all featured, encouraging wild life to return. The park buzzes with a host of species: red tailed black bumblebees, banded white tailed bumblebees, azure blue damselflies, ladybirds, Adonis blue butterflies, small tortoiseshell butterflies and brown meadow butterflies.
