The Industrial Revolution and the coming of the railway in 1847 turned the village of Walsall into a town, although travellers arriving at Walsall station today would be hard-pressed to find much of this heritage at first glance. Since 1980 the station has been contained within the Saddler's Shopping Centre, right in the heart of town and just a short walk from the pedestrianised centre to the north and east. Close by is The New Art Gallery Walsall, which opened in 2000 - alongside its permanent collection, it hosts regular exhibitions of modern and contemporary art. Beyond the town centre and about 15 minutes' walk from the station is Walsall Arboretum, a park that was created in 1874 around two flooded limestone quarries. The park has a boating lake, bowling green, playgrounds and a water park for when the weather is fine. Recent refurbishments include a new cafe and miniature train.
