Central Park, Peterborough 8199

England

Brief Description

Central Park is a Victorian public park sited to the north of the city centre. Features include an aviary, bowling greens, formal and sunken gardens. It retains many elements of the original layout and now also lies within a conservation area.

History

The Peterborough Land Company bought 134.8 hectares of land to the north of the city in 1875. The land was to be developed for housing, with a park planned at the centre. The partially complete park was opened at Easter 1877, and remained relatively unchanged until after 1908, when the City Council took over responsibility for the site.
