Nature's World, The Botanic Centre eco-experience

Please note that Natures World has now closed. We will replace this page in due course.

Eco structure - Nature's World Hydroponicum Following its opening in 1992, Nature's World evolved into a thriving visitor attraction, training centre and educational facility for the whole of the local and wider community. As part of on-going re-development planning, the centre continued to develop and further enhance the site, adding new exhibits and features for everyone to enjoy. These included family trails, solar powered talking posts, educational play parks, a giant bank-side slide, an interactive sustainability challenge, 2020 future world, the race to recycle and much more! Sadly the facility was forced to close following financial difficulties.

The Friends of Nature's World were given council permission in 2014 to work on the gardens and occasionally open parts of the site to the public.

Forgotten paths are being revealed and formal gardens given a new lease of life. The gardens are no longer in pristine condition, but have transformed into something even more special: A biodiverse, green space and habitat for a variety of wildlife -including 18 species of butterfly (including the white letter hairstreak). Friends of Nature's World are currently based in the former Nature's World Tea Room and gardens, next to Middlesbrough Environment City office, patchwork orchard and forest school.
