Nottingham's original park, beautifully set out. Some surprising artefacts -- captured cannon and a looted Chinese bell. Highly recommended, but why are the w.c.s locked out of use?

This is a central city park with mixed open spaces & a variety of rare trees. There is a bandstand which is occasionally used.

You can download a tree trail guide from nottinghamcity.gov and checkout the most interesting specimens including a redwood and a bean tree and, seriously, it has beans hanging from it!

It was snowing when first visited it and it was like a scene from a movie. I will visit again. I recommend everyone to visit it. It's so beautiful and you can take nice photos to keep as a great memory with friends.

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.
