Brooke Park Sunrise
The legacy of John Gwyn and James Hood Brooke can be witnessed in what today is Brooke Park.
In fact the park owes its very existence to these two philanthropic benefactors, although each had very different aims in mind when they decided to use their influence and wealth for the good of the local community.
The site was originally laid out in the Victorian era as part of the establishment of a boys’ orphanage - the first to be established in the city.
In August 1901, Brooke Park was handed over to the Londonderry Corporation and has been maintained by the local authority as a public park for the last 113 years.
