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.
