Don't miss this.....
In the middle of the park is its most recognisable feature, the fifty foot high Clock Tower. Unveiled 15 September 1896 and donated by the park’s founder Mayor Alderman J.G. Blaker, it is made of steel, cast iron and finished in bronze.
Today it remains as a main focal point of the park, offering a unique area to enjoy some food and drink from the nearby cafe.
