Nottingham Arboretum Park

 

Designed by Samuel Curtis and opened in 1852,  this is Nottingham's oldest public park. After many years of neglect and decline, it has recently been restored and now looks wonderful again. Apart from the absence of working toilets and a cafe for refreshments the park is just about  as good as it was.  As a small child I lived only a few hundred yards away, and visited several times a week. In the 1940's it was very well used and it is to be hoped that the younger generations will re-discover it and appreciate what a valuable inner city asset this park is.

In 2012 this beautiful park celebrated its 160 Anniversary, and to mark this milestone an event was held on Sunday 13th May. The set of 20 photographs immediately below were taken on that day. The park is noted for its flower beds and the spring displays of tulips and other plants were well up to the high 'Arboretum Standard' as will be seen below. I was also very pleased to hear that there are now plans for a new cafe and toilets.
