Walsall Arboretum is a Victorian public park located close to Walsall town centre

The site is a rural retreat at the heart of Walsall town centre. First opened in 1874, it now spans 170 acres and includes Hatherton lake, the country park and the extension. The park includes gardens, green spaces, play areas, and sports facilities.

The park has a wide variety of trees (over 10,00 different species of trees and shrubs), some ancient and others more recent, which provide a valuable habitat for all kinds of wildlife. They support many species of insects, moths, bats and squirrels, as well as many different birds, including blue tits, tree creepers and woodpeckers. This habitat supports some of the the most beautiful species of birds from blue tits to green woodpeckers.   

Walsall Arboretum is a historic parkland that boasts Lakes, ditches and wonderful wildlife habitats which attract birds such as Swans and Crested Grebes as well as providing food and shelter for nesting waterbirds and a healthy habitat for frogs, fish and dragonflies to thrive. The colourful flowers provide nectar for insects and the reeds and bulrushes provide shelter for nesting birds.
