The Queenswood Country Park and Arboretum covers a large area compromising of a 67 acre arboretum containing over 1,200 rare and exotic trees from all over the world and a 103 acre area of semi-natural ancient woodland. The planting of the trees started in 1953 to mark the Coronation of Queen Elizabeth II. Now there is a collection of Californian Redwood trees that can grow to over 100 meters tall and a collection of Japanese Maples that present a fantastic show of colour through the autumn.

The park has recently had installed a sculpture trail depicting animals you might find in each sort of woodland. Each piece was carved by a local sculptor from a variety of locally-sourced wood. Here you can see an Eagle Owl watching for its next meal, created by Steve Elsby. A beautiful piece of art to find just sitting in between the trees.
