This seven acre site is the home to many fine ornamental trees and along with the formal bedding areas has helped Falmouth win many Britain in Bloom competitions. The gardens at Kimberley Park pre-date 1877 and are named after the Earl of Kimberley, who leased the parks to the Borough of Falmouth.
The variety of trees, some of which are much admired by Kew Gardens staff, have produced a green oasis enjoyed by visitors and the local community alike. The Falmouth Town Council also encourages the donation of trees by local organisations to the tree planting programme to help protect the heritage of Falmouth.
In 2013 Heritage Lottery funding enabled the installation of a wonderful children’s play area popular with residents and visitors alike.
