The garden at Newark Park

View over Newark Park garden and estate

We're doing all we can to manage ash dieback. Unfortunately that means felling trees at Newark. Please visit the Our Work section of our webpage to find out more.

Around the garden

The Glade Walk takes you from the quirky folly to the rockery beneath Newark House. In contrast, the lakeside garden has a relaxing and romantic feel. You can sit and watch the ducks swimming on the small lake or venture into the charming, historic summerhouse. If you're after colour, the borders won't disappoint. The seasonal borders on the south terrace are real showstoppers and provide plenty of colour.


Seasonal highlights

If you're looking for the wow factor, there are many seasonal specials to look out for.

The floor is a carpet of white in February, as snowdrops peep their heads above the grass. A little later in spring, daffodils and tulips take over. The summer borders are always full of colour but autumn doesn't go unnoticed either. The delicate pink flowering cyclamens come into their own and put on one last show of colour before winter.

The pink cyclamen add to the autumn colours.

Perky peacocks

The peacocks that roam the garden are very friendly and love to call out to their friends. They live at Newark Park full time so you're almost certain to see one.
