Hove Park was opened in 1906, and in that year the famous ‘Goldstone’, which previously stood for many years in farmland at Goldstone Bottom was moved there. If you want to read about the legend surrounding the ‘Goldstone’ you can do so here.
The park covers almost 40 acres and features a mix of large areas of open grass, mature trees, flower beds and recreational facilities. At the eastern edge of the Park is the ‘Fingermaze’, a piece of public sculpture carved into the park and lined with stone and lime mortar. The Fingermaze is a giant fingerprint which incorporates a Cretan labyrinth within its whirling design.
