Walsall is probably best know for the Arboretum, it's the premier park within Walsall, located immediately adjacent to the town centre. It is one of the oldest parks in the borough, having been originally developed around two flooded limestone quarries, opening as a public park in 1874. The annual illuminations in the park are very popular with thousands of visitors attending each year.
