Lorne Park is Brantford's famous showcase horticultural park. The park is named after the Marquis of Lorne who was the Governor General of Canada from 1878 - 1883. Formerly part of the riverbed, park was low lying until it was gradually filled in after the first dikes were built.
In 1914, a study by Dunnington Grubb, a famous landscape firm, suggested that the city buy the property to enlarge Cockshutt Park as far as Lorne Bridge. By 1920 this land had been acquired to beautify the western entrance to Brantford at the river crossing.
For a short period the site was a miniature golf course called Pickwick Park. By 1936 Lorne Park was laid out in formal flower beds. At that time it also featured a bathing area.
The plantings on the south facing slope are changed annually to celebrate various important occasions. This is known as carpet bedding, an art which began in the 19th century.
