The land was purchased by the Town Council as an open space. The conditions of sale are that nothing should be built upon it. The land has some Elms and Chestnut trees with preservation orders. The Council has a programme for maintaining the trees and replacing them, if necessary. The land also hosts a Regional Competition size BMX track which was built in 2009.

This area is owned by the Town Council. Trees were planted by local school children over the past years and also provides an area of natural habitat down to the river. It provides a focal point for the Remembrance Garden set around the Peace Memorial. The flag pole proudly flies the Lincolnshire Flag.
