Cracking news! Local businesses delight as cygnets hatch at Arlington Business Park
11 May 2010
A new set of occupiers have arrived at Arlington Business Park, Reading, much to the delight of businesses based on the Park.
A number of cygnets hatched to a pair of swans who have made their home at the Park for 10 years.
The swans had a total of nine eggs in their nest this year.
Richard Potter, Property Services Director of UK Business Parks for Goodman said: “The hatching of the swans’ eggs has become an annual event which the occupiers on the Park look forward to each year. They usually hatch during May and a lot of people come down to the lake during lunchtime to see them and take a walk around the nature trail we have here.
Amongst the high quality office buildings at Arlington Business Park is an urban oasis where native plants and wildlife flourish, thanks to global property group Goodman, which owns, develops and manages most of the Park.
Potter continued: “As one of the world’s leading developers of business space we pride ourselves on creating high quality working environments for our customers in unique settings. Arlington Business Park has been highly recognised by the British Association of Landscape Industries (BALI) for its landscaping and environment, which provides our occupiers, from swans to businesses, with a relaxing retreat.”
Set within a superb natural setting, Arlington Business Park has over six different species of fish including carp, pike and rudd living amongst the plant life in the three acre lake. It is also frequently visited by a wide range of waterfowl, including the swans, which nest on site, and herons and cormorants. Additional planting on the Park also attracts bees, butterflies, hoverflies and moths.
Arlington Business Park is situated in Theale, close to Reading and junction 12 of the M4. It offers wide range of high quality office space, with 70,000 sq ft available at the park, and is situated around a stunning landscaped lake that provides a relaxed working environment for its occupiers, attracting companies such as Pepsi Co and KPMG.
