Tennis Courts, St Ann's Well Gardens
St Ann's Well Gardens is home to a wide range of native and exotic trees. These give the gardens their unique character and provide shelter and tranquillity for wildlife. Nature conservation has a high profile with designated fenced off areas, a stream bed and a well stocked pond with a biological filter system.

The park is probably most famous for its 'Chalybeate' (iron bearing) spring, later known as St Ann's Well. The Chalybeate spring is also the starting point of a ley line that continues over the South Downs and beyond.

In 1908 the authorities purchased the gardens for 10,000 and they were opened to the public on Empire Day in 1908.
