Nottingham Arboretum (Nottingham)

Nottingham Arboretum is an arboretum at Nottingham.

The main entrance is in Waverley Street.

Designed by Samuel Curtis, who partly designed Victoria Park in the East End of London, it was Nottingham`s first public park and opened in 1852.

There are a number of statues in the park, and the Chinese Bell Tower was erected in 1859 to house a bell taken by soldiers from a temple in Canton during the Opium Wars. The present bell is a replica.

The main aviary was built in 1955, but here is also a circular one, dating from 1889.
