A short history of the park

This park is the first park established in Dover dating back to Victorian times. The park was opened by R.H. Duchess of Connaught on the 14th July 1883
and remains more or less unchanged in its main structure since. The park is terraced and on the lower level are formal lawns with flowerbeds and an ornamental pond, a bird aviary and picnic area. On the next level there are hard and soft tennis courts and a children’s playground, also a 5 aside football pitch (when they put the goal posts back) above this the lawns slope up the hillside to the top terrace and commands excellent views over Dover.
The park has both men`s and ladies toilets.

Take a walk through the park.
