Friends of McIlroy Park
McIlroy Park is located on rising ground in a residential area of Tilehurst, and boasts sweeping views of the River Thames. The Park consists of grassland bordered by semi-ancient mixed woodland which includes oak, hazel and beech as well as an extensive area of holly. Some of the woodland is steeply sloped. The site was designated a Local Nature Reserve in 1992.
