Plaque: Gift from Lord Rothermere
Erection date: /7/1934
Geraldine Mary Harmsworth Park
This park which was opened in July 1934 was formerly the grounds of Bethlem Hospital - the land was bought by Lord Rothermere who presented it to the London County Council to be laid out as a park and named in memory of his mother.
This plaque was unveiled a second time, during the 75th anniversary celebrations on 18 July 2009. From the Daily Mail: the 4th Viscount Rothermere "said he was very touched to be invited to unveil the very plaque dedicated by his great-grandfather in 1934. Recently restored by sculptor Hamish Horsley, it had fallen into disrepair and was only rediscovered during a chance clear-out of the park's Lodge."
