History

Queen’s Park was named to honour Queen Victoria, who opened the Royal Agricultural Show that took place on the site in 1879. The show was memorable due to the extremely bad weather during of the wettest summers on record. Although a permanent site for the show was chosen elsewhere in Twyford, popular demand saw the central part of the site protected as green space and opened as a park in 1886. It was named Queen’s Park the following year to celebrate the Golden Jubilee of the monarch.

Development of the streets around the park had already started around this time, particularly between 1895 and 1905 when numerous Victorian and Edwardian style properties were constructed.
