Eastern Pleasure Ground
As you enter the gardens using the contemporary bridge over the River Trent, to your right is the Eastern Pleasure Ground. It lies to the east of The Italian Garden, and was simple parkland before the regeneration of the gardens, in 2004. In total, 60,000 perennials are utilised in the Eastern Pleasure Ground.
Here, you’ll find two schemes, by internationally acclaimed Dutch garden designer Piet Oudolf, to literally get lost in!
The Rivers of Grass - a breathtaking prairie garden landscape
The Floral Labyrinth - bold colour, scent and height
Follow the path with the River Trent to your right, and you’ll discover the remains of Trentham Hall, and one of the most peaceful parts of the gardens.
