Howard Davis Park, St Helier

By TrevBatWCC    
The beautiful Howard Davis Park in St Helier was a gift to the island by one of its most generous benefactors, Thomas Benjamin Frederick Davis or T B Davis, as he is always known. He was born at Havre des Pas, St Helier, Jersey on 25 April 1867.
A great admirer of the monarchy and friend of King George V, Davis had decided to give the grounds to the people of Jersey as a public park in memory of his son Howard, who lost his life in World War One, and to erect a statue of the King (V2).
The park was officially opened by T B Davis on Saturday 30th September 1939.
