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
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.
