The Victorian shelter was repaired and the bandstand was fully restored in 1990 to mark the park's centenary.
The People’s Park was conceived as a formal recreation area in Victorian times. Despite fairly radical alteration to the pathway system, it still retains that ambience. It is enclosed on two sides by formal stonewalls and piers with ornate wrought iron railings and gates. Its eastern side adjoins private properties and is composed mostly of rock outcrop, which serves as a reminder of its original use as a quarry. Its final boundary with "The Metals" consists of a more recent railing.
