Westgate Wood covers 23 acres and was planted by local volunteers in 1999. Trees and shrubs that grow well in the fenland conditions were selected. Look out for alder, ash, crack willow, downy birch, dog rose, hawthorn, guelder rose and alder buckthorn. The woodland is now managed by Boston Woods Trust. The land next to Westgate Wood is an arboretum dedicated to the Lincolnshire botanist Sir Joseph Banks.
Boston Woods Trust was formed in 2001 to provide the people of Boston with recreational opportunities such as walking and bird watching. As well as Westgate Woods they manage Beech Wood and Grange Wood in the town.
