Interesting history, and the site of another modern bandstand!

Whilst looking at surviving bandstands, I noticed that Pencester Gardens in Dover was a timber yard from the late 19th century until sometime between 1907 and 1937. Sometime in this latter period it was turned into a park. Was the park created for any particular reason (commemoration of an event or a memorial perhaps?)
