The Park has over 4000 trees, many of which date back to the original layout of 1858.
A leaflet is obtainable from the Pump House or Park Office to guide you on a short tour of the Park and the numerous species of trees growing there. The trees on the trail are all marked with a white numbered tag placed in a visible place for those walking clockwise round the trail. It takes about one and a half hours walking at a gentle pace.
Long serving Friends’ ex-committee member Tom Maxwell has created a interesting commentary on the trees in the Park. It can be found here.
