Houghton Hall Park Houghton Hall Park is parkland in Houghton Regis. It is within walking distance of Houghton Regis town centre and is owned and maintained by both Houghton Regis Town Council and Central Bedfordshire Council. The Greensand Trust works on behalf of Central Bedfordshire Council to maintain and enhance the nature conservation interest in the park and access. Houghton Hall Park was originally the landscaped gardens of Houghton Hall and has largely remained in the character of a 17th century landscape garden with broad vistas and well-defined paths indicated by lines of English yew in the woodlands. Monthly Volunteer Tasks On one Sunday a month Greensand Trust Rangers run a volunteer conservation task at the park with the Friends of Houghton Hall Park. Tasks vary each month and include comfrey and hogweed management, coppicing, litter picking, wildflower and nest box surveys, whip planting and much more. The 2019 schedule of events is available here to view. To find out more email [email protected] or call 01525 234260. Youth Ranger Scheme For the past two years we have run a successful Youth Ranger Scheme at the park for young people aged 13-18 to join us at the site taking part in environmental conservation leading to a John Muir Award.
