Kimberley Park Falmouth
Kimberley Park in the heart of Falmouth dates back to the C19th when the Earl of Kimberley leased the park to the Town. Over the years the park has seen several additions and changes most recently the addition of the beautiful wooden play area, Kimberley Perk coffee shop and it is now the stage for the very popular Parklive music event that takes place throughout the summer months.
The park is one of three parks in the Town to have received green flag status for its cleanliness, community involvement and horticultural excellence and has contributed to the Town’s success in Birtain in Bloom competitions over the years.
The automata were created by three local, world renowned automata makers Rob Higgs, Keith Newstead and Paul Spooner. The designs are based on Falmouth’s maritime history and Packet Ships, with a sunken submarine, a magic postbox complete with letters from Packet Ship sailors, (written by local school children), and a balletic goat paying tribute to the brave crew of the Packet Ship Antelope, that fought off an attack from the ship Atlanta with an ailing crew of 29.
A long afternoon can easily be spent admiring the stunning flowers and trees and pond while children are entertained for long hours in the play area complete with two ping pong tables!
