Redwood Park is situated on a steeply sloping wooded hill. It was once part of the homestead of early pioneer, David Brown. When his twin sons, David and Peter, were 21 he gave them each 40 acres on the hilltop which had been logged. They immediately began to replant it with exotic species of trees from around the world. Today, Redwood Park is a major collection of exotic tree species, particularly evergreens.
David and Peter lived on the property all their lives, becoming more solitary and eccentric. Eventually they built a two-storey tree house, which they lived in for many years. Though it burned down more than once, it has been rebuilt and is still a feature of the park.
