Cambridge City Council have set up an interactive tree trail to celebrate the trees in the park. You can use a smartphone to follow a route between different trees, and learn interesting facts about each one. Visit Cherry Hinton Hall Tree Trail to access the interactive trail.

The park was originally private grounds for Cherry Hinton Hall, a Victorian country house built in the 1830s (now a Grade II listed building, it is owned by Cambridge City Council and leased out to other organisations).
The Friends of Cherry Hinton Hall act as advocates and champions of the Cherry Hinton Hall grounds. Visit their website for more information about its history.
