The site was originally part of the 'Smoothfield' outside the City walls where jousts, executions and markets were held in the 14th and 15th centuries.
The site was laid out as a public garden in 1872 with a drinking fountain and bronze figure representing ‘Peace’ by John Birnie Philip added in 1873. Beneath the garden was once an underground station, the ramp that led down to this can still be seen today.
