At the centre of the gardens sits arguably its showpiece, the large ornamental lake and its fountains.
Originally the cooling pond for the pumping station, the clear water is now topped with shiny green lily pads and surrounded by trees and mature shrubs, which soften the edges and throw dappled light onto the water.
RELAX AND REFRESH
Take a stroll around the lake and explore the mature gardens thanks to newly-laid paths that criss-cross the 10-acre grounds.
Stop at one of the many secluded seats or picnic benches and drink in your surroundings, or take a moment to stretch out and relax on the grassy banks overlooking the sparkling water.
Grab a drink or a snack from our outdoor terrace bar and sit awhile, listening to the sound of water splashing from the fountains and the gentle rustle of wind in the trees. Watch the koi carp swim lazily to and fro and keep your eyes peeled – you might even spot a turtle!
Come evening, the terrace is lit up with festoon lighting strung overhead, while the original cast-iron lamps and other spotlights highlight the gardens and give spectacular views across the water.
Just a stone’s throw from Nottingham, but a whole world away.
