Our six trails, newly waymarked in 2020 to coincide with Sportspark’s 20th birthday celebrations, have been implemented for students, staff and the local community to explore the University Campus and learn more about its wildlife and heritage. Each trail is different, and after just a few walks, you will get active and uncover more of UEA’s beautiful campus.

Sculpture Park Trail
The Sculpture Park is situated across the University campus, developed by the Sainsbury’s Centre, with 350 acres of attractive parkland open to everyone to enjoy art, architecture and the natural environment.
As well as formal sculpture gardens, the Park offers the tranquillity of the Broad and Yare river valley and dense urban modernist architecture, designed by leading architects such as Norman Foster, Denys Lasdun and Rick Mather. The natural environment includes a wide range of fauna and flora including a number of remarkable ancient oaks and is home to a population of wild rabbits and rare and endangered species.

There are four sections to the trail covering different habitats; using existing pathways around the campus and river valley to highlight conservation issues and some of the key habitats and species. Some species are easy to see and some are more challenging!

Kate Russell from the School of Education and Lifelong Learning has created some great mindfulness sessions that you can access at any time and have a go at. No experience needed but maybe start with the introduction video just to give you some basics about how to set your space up to practice. You can find the sessions created so far below:
