Litter Bugs Trail

Discover giant bugs made of litter around Black Park! Come along with your family and friends to our FREE trail. Learn all about how to reduce, reuse, recycle and most importantly, why not to drop litter. Don’t be a litterbug!

The trail will be running from Friday 17th March to Sunday 16th April in conjunction with the Keep Britain Tidy Great British Spring Clean 2023 campaign. The self-led trail will be around Black Park during usual car park opening hours, so you can turn up at any point when we’re open, no need to pre book! There will be directional signs out on display, or you can refer to the map available to download very soon!

A special thanks to Black Park Shed for their help in cutting the bug templates. To find out more information about them as a charitable organisation please visit:

What can I see on the trail?

There will be a series of artworks constructed from litter collected from the Country Parks, in the shape of giant bugs, from bottle top beetles to water bottle spiders! There are a few new additions this year too! Will you find them all? There will also be interesting facts and information about recycling, the environment and how you can make a difference accompanying each sculpture.

Where do I go?

There will be directional signs around the site within the trail dates, so simply park in the Black Park car park and look out for our Litter Bug Trail signs or return here soon to see the map.
