About

Princes Park was designed by Joseph Paxton and James Pennethorne and opened in 1842. The plan was drawn by John Robertson and Edward Milner supervised the work. The original gates can still be seen.

With its serpentine lake and a circular carriage drive, the park set a style which was to be widely emulated in Victorian urban development, most notably by Paxton himself on a larger scale at Birkenhead Park. Princes Park also influenced its near neighbour, Sefton Park.

An obelisk and former drinking fountain in the park bears the inscription:

To the memory of Richard Vaughan Yates
The enlightened & philanthropic founder of Princes Park
Erected by public subscription 1858
