Lovely venue with an amazing variety of trees. The rose garden is beautiful too. Easy to get in and around but no public loo or coffee shop so plan ahead.

Had a walk around this park and it has a couple of brilliant surprises. The aviary and the Chinese Bell Tower with its 4 cannons. The fabulous flower beds bursting with colour.

I've been here a few times now, in the winter with snow and in spring. It's always lovely and a nice walk away from the city centre. Great for some photography.

Get the tram which is through the station towards pheonix park or hucknall and get off at the arboretum. It is a great place for a family picnic

Yes, it’s ideal for a picnic. Depending on your mum’s mobility it is walkable from the city centre; probably 20 to 30 minutes.
