The Arboretum

This Green Flag award winning park is Nottingham's oldest public park and the closest park to the city centre. A historic, beautifully maintained park that is home to an important collection of over 800 trees, some of which are from the original collection planted in the 19th century. The Arboretum hosts a busy and varied programme of entertainment throughout the year including the Nottingham Green Festival, every year in September.

Public access to the Arboretum is via a network of pedestrian walkways. The park has four entrance points (Waverley Road, Arboretum Street, North Sherwood Street and Addison Street.) Parking can be arranged for disabled drivers by arrangement with the Parks and Open Spaces service on 0115 915 2733.

The NET Trams runs along Waverley Street and stops close to the entrance. Visit the tram website at:
