Derby Parks - Public Parks in the City of Derby

The City of Derby has more than 300 areas of public open space including many fine parks and gardens. Derby Arboretum was the first public park in the country, and with the aid of a lottery grant has recently undergone extensive improvement and renovation. Originally it had been donated to the people of Derby in 1840 by local mill owner and former Mayor Joseph Strutt.
