Greening Lincoln

There are 47 Local Wildlife Sites, making up 740 hectares and account for 21% of the land in the City of Lincoln administrative boundary.

Local Wildlife Sites are defined areas identified and selected locally for their substantive nature conservation value. They play a crucial part in the natural processes that maintain, air, soil and water quality and reduce the effects of flooding, pollution and climate change.  They represent local character and distinctiveness and symbolise the best of our urban green spaces.  

You can view green spaces in Lincoln on our interactive mapping tool.

Lincoln falls within the Witham Valley Country Park, an area made up of a number of high quality green spaces in the heart of Lincolnshire.
