Henrietta Park

 

View Map

This pleasant 2.8 hectare (7 acre) park is situated close to the city centre and was laid out and opened to celebrate the Diamond Jubilee of Queen Victoria of 1897.  It contains many fine trees, extensive shrubberies, beautiful flower beds and public toilets.

It also contains the King George V Garden of Remembrance where superb bedding displays are arranged around a central pool and fountain.  A place to sit quietly, an oasis of peace, tranquillity and beauty just minutes away from the bustle of city life.
