Welcome to Princes Park

  Princes Park was designed by Joseph Paxton (1803 -1865) who was an English gardener,  architect and Member of Parliament, best known for  designing The Crystal Palace.

  Paxton made his name as Head Gardener of Chatsworth  House, Derbyshire. Both prior to his involvement with  Princes Park and long after its completion, he combined  the skills of gardener, engineer and architect to design  radical inventive and influential landscapes.
