This man made pond whose islands were built like a wall from large stones was opened in 1924. It is clear that a tremendous amount of work was put into its construction.
The pond remains a great attraction to young and old alike. The pedal boats remain popular with children allowing them to see the swans and cygnets nesting on the islands.
On certain evenings in the past, a very impressive display of model boats could be seen on the pond whose speed and direction were contolled by enthusiasts along the banks with their radio control boxes in hand.
