The Meadows now has more outdoors free standing art than the city centre.
The guide put together by the Meadows Tree Project lists the 12 poles, their sculptors and their themes.

Lilian Greenwood MP and friends unveiled the last statue, representing Queen Victoria on the day in 1843 when she visited Nottingham Midland station, when she was younger, and on her way to Belvoir Castle.
A surprising perspective, cos she is generally shown in her old age.
Up to 70 people attended the tour of the twelve story poles, with explanations of the themes and stories given at each one, such as Pat Thomas explain the green story pole – pictured below.
Five year sevens from Emmanuel school and six pupils from Welbeck school attended. The Emmanuel pupils had helped design the transport story pole.
Afterwards, it was tea and cakes (by Bel Edis) at Carroll Gardens.
