About

The Arboretum was the first specially designed urban park in Britain. Joseph Strutt commissioned and donated the park for the benefit of citizens of Derby in 1840. the intention was a botanical tree garden for instruction as well as leisure. John Claudius Loudon designed, constructed and planted the gardens, while EB Lamb designed the two Tudor style lodges. Some of the trees are listed on the British Isles Tree Register, a catalogue of notable trees in the country recorded by the Forestry Commission. A free leaflet is available from Derby Tourist Information. From 22nd November 2007, members of the public will be able to book a free tour of Grove Lodge, Arboretum Park's interpretation centre and former park keeper's house, which opens to the public next spring.
