This 6.5 hectare park exists today in much the same shape and form as when Colonel Light surveyed it in 1837, and exhibits characteristics of a semi-formal Victorian gardenesque style, with a mix of exotic and native flora.   However in the first two decades of European settlement, (in the 1840's and 1850's) this Park was used as the City's rubbish dump!
