A pleasant 2.8 hectare (7 Acre) park opened to celebrate the Diamond Jubilee of Queen Victoria of 1897. The park land was donated by Captain Forrester of 3rd Kings Own Hussars, with the stipulation that it should always remain a green space and never be built on.
Henrietta Park is situated within walking distance of the city centre and is an oasis of tranquility with places to sit quietly or take a relaxing stroll around the circular walk amongst many fine trees and floras.
