Eyre Square was officially named the John F. Kennedy Memorial Park in 1965 but the park is yet to be known by this name. It is a great place to relax within the city and on a sunny day is just perfect. The origin of the square comes from medieval open space in front of town gate, known as The Green. The land that became Eyre Square was officially presented to the city in 1710 by Mayor Edward Eyre.
