The gardens are a community space and nature reserve and contains ancient woodland. Recently volunteers have completed conservation work and made the area more accessible for local people.

Despite being a small space, Lynwood Gardens also contains a community apple orchard and is home to 60 species of birds as well as protected species including badgers and bats.
