About this walk
Also known as Evington Arboretum, The Arboretum is an attractive open public space on the southern boundary of the City of Leicester. Recreational, botanical, wildlife and historical features make this a popular space. There are over 500 species of trees and a fenced nature area has been planted with native trees and shrubs and a sown wildflower grassland. The southern section of the site below the brook is predominantly grassland, and is managed as meadow or rough mown grass to encourage a species and wild flower diversity. It is surrounded by a Breedon gravel footpath and criss-crossed by a well-developed system of grass paths.

5 years agoA short circular walk with interests enough for me to come back. No rubbish around which is great if, like me, your dog is a scavenger.
