The Festival Pleasure Gardens were designed as a recreation and entertainment space for the 1951 Festival of Britain, with much of the planting designed by James Gardner. The site featured a new water garden and fountains with popular attractions including a 'Tree-Walk', the Guinness Festival Clock and a pleasure railway known as the Far Tottering and Oyster Creek Branch Railway.
