The Arboretum is the most important surviving element of the historic Park landscape and boasts an excellent collection of mature trees, set within fine lawns. The newly planted Royal Oak joins other unusual tree specimens in the Arboretum including Blue Atlas Cedar, Dawn Redwood and Incense Cedar. The oldest trees in the collection were planted in the early 1800’s and today form a wonderful vista enjoyed by Park tenants and visitors alike.
Mick Player, Head Groundsman commented: “Having worked here for 24 years I never tire of the beautiful view and peaceful atmosphere at the Park. It’s particularly pleasing to be able to add to the already beautiful surroundings with the addition of this little Royal Oak, which hopefully will be here for many to enjoy for years to come.”
In addition to the ceremonial tree planting tenants at Chesterford Research Park were also able to enjoy a Diamond Jubilee lunch in the Nucleus restaurant (http://www.thenucleus.uk.com) to mark the occasion. The traditional British fare included fish and chips and homemade scones topped with strawberries and cream!

The Park also operates a taxi service and regular shuttle buses to and from the railway station at Audley End, from which London is only an hour away.
