The land was originally flat, but was landscaped and given an undulating appearance with an ornamental lake. The park was laid out by Mr Henry Moore, the head gardener at Peel Park. By 1895 the park had two central lakes, both with islands arranged either side of an axial walk.Albert Park, named in commemoration of the consort of Queen Victoria was opened in 1877 and originally had a two acre lake which was filled in in around about 1950.
