Firs Gardens is a pleasant green park with mature trees including a couple of Giant Redwood trees.

The gardens used to be part of a nearby house no longer in existence called "The Firs" and they were sold in 1910 to Marie Corelli (novelist) who wanted to preserve them as an open space for the benefit of the town. They were refurbished in 1990 by the town and district councils.
