Buccleuch ParkThis park located between the Raritan River and Easton Avenue features 78 acres of rolling terrain. Buccleuch Park, pronounced (Bucc-lew is home to the Buccleuch Mansion, a former Colonial Estate. The mansion recently underwent a historical restoration and is open for tours on Sunday’s 2-4pm from June-Oct. Buccleuch Park also features many athletic fields for baseball, softball, tennis, soccer, cricket, or basketball and a 1.5 mile cross country /fitness trail. Buccleuch Park also has a playground, rock garden, flower garden, gazebo, and picnic pavilion. During the winter months and the parks department offers sledding and ice skating (weather permitting).A gazebo is a pavilion structure, sometimes octagonal or turret-shaped, often built in a park, garden or spacious public area.Gazebos include pagodas, pavilions, kiosks, alhambras, belvederes, follies, pergolas, and rotundas. Such structures are popular in warm and sunny climates. They are in the literature of China, Persia, and many other classical civilizations, going back to several millennia. Examples of such structures are the garden houses at Montacute House in Somerset, England. The gazebo at Elton on the Hill in Nottinghamshire, thought to date from the late 18th or early 19th century, is a square crenelated, brick and stone tower with an arched opening, part of an extensive system of red-brick walled gardens.In contemporary England and North America gazebos are typically built of wood and covered with standard roofing materials, such as shingles. Gazebos can be tent-style structures of poles covered by tensioned fabric. Gazebos may have screens to aid in the exclusion of flying insects.Temporary gazebos are often set up in the campsites of music festivals in the United Kingdom and North America, usually accompanying tents around it.
