These are known collectively as the Action Zone, to promote activity amongst young people.

The park was purchased in stages starting in 1888 and after the First World War a sewage works was constructed, although by the 1940/50s this was out of use and the area was used for landfill. Subsequently in the 1950/60s the area was turned into a public park with lakes which now form part of a flood relief system for the town.
The lakes are home to a variety of wildlife including nesting swans.
