The 23 acres of Beech Wood are made up of three sections. The established central section is predominately Beech Wood which has been seeded with bluebells and planted with daffodils. To the south is Pioneer Wood with its pond and small amphitheatre whilst the area on the north side is home to Beech Wood Green Burial.
There are also some wonderful chainsaw carvings and the children's play trail.
Grange Wood is our smallest wood, located close to residential housing on the north west side of Boston.
There is a circuit of all-weather paths making it easily accessible to all. In this area the woodland flowers have naturalised and the snowdrops do particularly well.
There are two carparks for Beech Wood, at Pioneer Wood and at Green Burial. PE21 8LA

Dion's Wood Nature Reserve
The third stage of the Boston Woods project will be Dion's Wood Nature Reserve. This site is still under construction and is not yet open to the public.
When complete it there will be nearly 35acres of young woodland and wild flower meadows with a lake and 3km of paths.
We intend that this area will prioritise the wildlife so no dogs will be allowed and visiters will be asked to keep to the paths.
