Ambleside Park sits on a residential stretch in outer suburbia. It is a house with gardens like any other, except that it holds historical treasures of local significance. The 1890s, multi-chrome, brick homestead is now a museum featuring old newspapers, genealogical records and a considerable collection of local photos and school photos of kids that grew up in the area. Agricultural equipment like old plough machines, manure spreaders, and wagons are also on display. The bedroom contains original furnishings that depict turn-of-the-century life. Even the gardens have historical significance; they contain trees and plants dating back to the 1870s. There is some basic admission fees for everyone.
