Derby Arboretum

Gardenvisit Editorial

The most important survinging design by the only British polymath ever to take up the profession of garden design: John Claudius Loudon. The Arboretum was one of the first public parks in Britain - in the precise sense of a space designed to be owned by the public and used for outdoor recreation. The serpentine mounds planted with trees survive in good condition but it is no longer run as a place of education and instruction, as Loudon would have wished. One can however obtain a leaflet listing the main tree species.

    A rather run-down city park. Not recommended.
