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.


The Friends organise monthly tasks on the 4th Sunday of the month throughout the year except August and December, see Programme for further details.
