Tree pollen peaks in April and May – so while the popular Abbey Park is a picturesque place to spend a spring day, you’ll want a few Allergy Comfort Wipes in your pocket because it’s also home to more than 33,000 trees.

If you’re allergic to tree pollen then maybe give Evington Park a wide berth, as it’s filled with English oak, chestnut, rare gingko and mature beech. Castle Hill Country Park might also set off your allergies thanks to its 250-acre grasslands and ash, oak and willow trees.
