Glorious gardens at Knowle Park

At Knowle Park nursing home in we have been taking full advantage of the super sunny days we have had and getting out and about and enjoying our beautiful surroundings and gardens.

 Set within nine acres of stunning parklands, our gardener, Ray Gretton, is always a very busy chap and to ensure our lawns are kept in tip top shape for our residents and guests to enjoy, he was delighted when he took delivery of a new Tractor Mower.

Ray Gretton said:

“I take great pride in the lawns and gardens here and really enjoy seeing the residents sitting and walking around the gardens with their visitors.

“I have been informed that when a prospective resident views Knowle Park, they always make comments on the wonderful grounds and feel proud I have contributed in some way to that.”

Ray always keeps our lawns and gardens immaculate and he can now continue to do so with his new red beast as he has fondly nicknamed it.


Jackie Cox, Home Manager said:

“We are blessed here at Knowle Park with our gardens and it’s always great for us to get outside and feel the sun on our faces and feel the fresh air. With the hard work and dedication of Ray, we all can enjoy the views all year round.”

At Knowle Park, while many of us love the feel of the warm rays on our faces, we know that sunshine and fresh air also brings a few other lesser-known health benefits as well such as improved sleep, lower blood pressure, improved bone health and brain function, to name just a few.

So with summer on the way, that means longer days with more sunshine are in the near future. Long may the glorious weather last!

Knowle Park provides the highest standard of residential and nursing care for up to 46 elderly people. Rated ‘Good’ by the quality inspector, CQC, we continuously improve the lives of our residents through offering wide ranging activities and events both in and outside of the home involving members of the local community as often as possible.
