The Dane John Gardens in Canterbury are public gardens created on common land in 1790 with the main focus of a mound that survives from a group of four Roman-British burial mounds of the 1st or 2nd Century AD. In 1790 Alderman James Simmons took on the land and levelled and laid out gardens at his own expense, but later it was taken over by the council who still owns it today. There are great views from the mound of the city, and regular events are hosted in the gardens, which also have a play area and a fountain all within the city walls.
