Catherine Nelson, chair of Friends of Cannizaro Park, said: "We like to think of Cannizaro Park as a jewel in Wimbledon’s crown – a sanctuary that’s treasured by locals and visitors alike and a real haven for wildlife.

"Our Grade II* listed Park has a remarkable range of nature – over 200 trees, rare plants and many birds and mammals.

Wimbledon Times:

"We want to showcase the many wildlife wonders at our new Nature Weekend and enable adults and children alike to learn and discover in Cannizaro Park."
