Urban Forest to be Situated in the Market Place over the Summer


From the end of June, the Market Place will be transformed into a urban forest.
It will be just one of four Urban Forests in the UK this summer and the only one in the East Midlands.
For Derby’s Urban-forest, over 500 trees and shrubs will be installed, covering most of the Market Place. Within the forest, a clearing will be created and picnic benches provided for city centre visitors to use for al-fresco dining. There will also be space for a stage so that the clearing can be used as a performance area.

Installation is due to start on Monday 20 June with the Urban Forest officially opening on Saturday 25 June. It will be in place for six weeks, until Saturday 29 August.
Information about events taking place in the Urban Forest will be available on the Derby LIVE website.
Visitors to the Urban Forest are encouraged to use active and sustainable transport such as walking, cycling and public transport to reach the city centre.
