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.

    A 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.
