This page contains information about the Oak Avenue at Brocks Hill Country Park.
One of the first planting schemes at Brocks Hill Country Park was the Oak Avenue, also known to some as the 'Millennium Avenue'. Pedunculate Oak (Quercus robur) trees were planted from March 1998. The sponsorship project was originally run through LOROS (Leicestershire Organisation for the Relief of Suffering), Leicester Mercury and Oadby and Wigston Borough Council and was advertised as being planted at Parklands Leisure Centre for the Martin Green Fund. The Avenue is now complete.
The Oak Avenue follows the line of the old driveway which led to Grange Farm, now the site of the Centre, which runs through the ridge and furrow fields.
