Lota Park, Abergwaun/Fishguard
The land for the park in the centre of the town was donated to the people of Fishguard in 1923 by the late Walter Williams, the son of a local sea captain, William Williams.
Walter Williams, who was a Fishguard solicitor and North Pembrokeshire coroner, requested that it be named after the town of Lota in Chile, where he was born. His parents had moved to Chile in 1863, and spent several years trading up and down the South American coast before returning to Fishguard and starting trade with the Baltics, taking salt herrings from Lower Town and returning with hemp and timber.
