Though not very large, this garden is clean, well kept and is a perfect place to cut-off from daily routine. Be on the look out for squirrels and do not miss the Chinese bell tower

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
