Lloyd Park
Lloyd Park
Lloyd Park is named after Frank Lloyd a newspaper magnate who died in 1927. His father Edward Lloyd founded the Lloyd News, later known as The Sunday News, and also the Daily Chronicle. He lived in Coombe House for thirty five years – see LinkExternal link. Before he died, Frank Lloyd had the idea of presenting some of his land to Croydon Corporation for playing fields. After his death the land passed to his daughter and she decided to make a gift of the land and so carry out her father’s wishes and at the same time provide some memorial to him which would commemorate his associations with the town. The parkland contains many old trees and the conditions of the gift included that they should be retained and preserved where possible. The western part of the park largely consists of playing fields but the eastern part, seen here, is more informal.
