History of Kensington Memorial Park

Kensington Memorial Park has been a public park since 1926 when it was opened to the public by Princess Louise, Duchess of Argyll.

The land was bought in 1923 with funds provided by the Kensington War Memorial Committee. They wanted to create a suitable tribute to those who had given their lives in the First World War.
