Located in the city centre, Queens Park is listed as one of Southampton's many city centre parks. This small formal park is surrounded on all sides by mature London Plane trees. The park includes the General Gordon Memorial recording his main military campaigns, notably the Second Opium Wars, where Britain was seeking to legalise the sale of China to create a market for opium grown in British controlled provinces of India. Queens Park underwent extensive renovations in 2014 including an extension over the area that was once used as a car park.
