I have been doing some research on the park. The earlist map was surveyed in 1881 and published 1885 or there abouts. The major problem is that the Park covers three corners of map sqaures and so I have had to try and stitch them together. You will see there is nothing to show. What is now the Park was a grass hill probably used for grazing. The only feature is a small quarry about where the gardeners huts are located. The 1903 map show the whole area built up and the Park not much different as it today. I caanot see how to include the maps here so have posted them as photos.
