About Us

Warwick District Council is one of five district councils within the county of Warwickshire. The district covers four towns; Leamington Spa, Warwick, Kenilworth and Whitnash, and many smaller villages.

Residents of Warwick District are fortunate to live in an area with a high number of parks and green spaces.  Major parks include Jephson Gardens, St Nicholas Park, Abbey Fields, Victoria Park and Newbold Comyn with a number of other larger country parks within easy distance of the major towns in the Warwickshire region.

These parks are well used and appreciated by both residents and the many visitors to the area, providing a combination of high horticultural design, aesthetically pleasing landscapes, lots of fun for the family, a wildlife haven and international quality bowling greens.

The district also benefits from many other attractive areas of green open space around housing estates and fringing roads and highways. There are also extensive green naturalised areas allowing residents to get close to nature and increasing the biodiversity of the district.

idverde was thrilled to have been appointed by Warwick District Council in 2012 to undertake grounds maintenance and horticultural services within the district until 2020. In 2020 we were delighted to re-win the contract for a new 16 year term, starting in April 2021. This pioneering contract will see idverde’s grounds maintenance service become carbon neutral by 2025, with innovations including zero-emissions tools ranging from handsaws to ride-on tractors.

The contract sees 28 sq km of green space being maintained by idverde. The green spaces include many of the council’s flagship parks, including:

  • Jephson Gardens in Leamington – awarded Green Flag Park status for 14 years in a row
  • Crackley Wood in Kenilworth – ancient semi-natural woodland is also a Green Flag site
  • Oakley Wood in Bishop’s Tachbrook​ – 116-acre plantation woodland with Green Flag status
  • St Nicholas Park in Warwick – established family-focused park in the heart of Warwick, next to the River Avon
  • Abbey Fields in Kenilworth – historical 68-acre park, which is home to the remains of St Mary’s Abbey, spacious grassland and a lake and a stream
