It is of typical Victorian park design with tree-lined avenues. The formal seasonal bedding displays planted in the 'petal beds' near Emmanuel Road, provide year-round colour.

There are also large ornamental shrub beds around the perimeter to add further year-round colour and interest.

On 22 September 1999 the new rose garden, in memory of Diana, Princess of Wales, was dedicated by the bishop of Huntingdon and officially opened by the mayor of Cambridge.

Christ's Pieces and New Square form a link between the historic city centre and the modern Grafton shopping centre.
