Extra Info:

Preston Park was Brighton's first and largest planned park. It was brought by Brighton Corporation in 1883 for the sum of £50,000 from Mr William Bennett-Stanford who owned the Preston Manor estate. The purchase (£50,000) and layout cost (£22,868) was funded by a bequest of £70,000 from a local bookmaker, William Edmund Davies in 1879. The park was formally declared open on 8 November 1884. Preston Park has undergone a major lottery-funded restoration project - find out more on our Preston Park restoration project pages. In 2008, it was recognised with another Green Flag award.
