The 'City of Trees' project was officially launched at a Welwyn Garden City Horticultural Society meeting at St. Francis Church Hall on March 10.

The circular walk goes through Stanborough Lakes, Mill Green, The Commons Nature Reserve, the site of the Panshanger Aerodrome, Tewin Bury, Digswell, Sherrardspark Woods, Brocket Hall and Lemsford.

There is also a one-mile accessible circular trail around The Commons and through part of the Nature Reserve.

Leaflets on the walks will be made available at points across the town over the next few weeks.

The team will be at the Howard Centre from 9am to 5pm tomorrow where they will be sharing leaflets and explaining more about these walks which celebrate our garden city.
