History of Queen's Park

Queen's Park opened in 1879 with money given to the town by Queen Victoria. The land was bought from the estate of Charles Martin Newhouse, a local cotton manufacturer, who died without making a will.

The park was extended in the 1920s to form the boating lake with land gifted from Alderman Davis Healey.
