The Crimean Cannon on display in the gardens near the Wallace Memorial tower is a trophy of the Crimean War (1856-56), the Russian cannon was captured at the Battle of Sebastopol. Admiral Meynel presented it to the people of Lisburn in 1858.

Castle Gardens is the most historically significant open space in Lisburn and was once the site of Lisburn Castle, a 17th century fortified manor house, built by the Conway family, the landlords of Lisburn. Upon the death of the last landlord, Sir Richard Wallace, and later his wife, Lady Wallace, the Gardens were gifted to the people of Lisburn by Lady Wallace's heir, Sir John Murray Scott in 1903.
