Dover Distrct Council (DDC) have a webpage listing local "Parks and Open Spaces". The entry for Connaught Park reads:

This park is the first park established in Dover dating back to Victorian times.

Set on the hillside below Dover Castle it provides facilities for both recreational and sporting activities.

The open grass slopes provide a pleasant environment for a stroll offering excellent views across the town.

The lower part of the park is set out in a more traditional style with an ornamental lake and lawns (above photo) leading to an aviary.

Within the park there are both grass and hard tennis courts and a play area for children.

The DDC webpage also has entries for Kearsney Abbey and Pencester Gardens.
