1931 Opening Ceremony

By the time the park was officially opened on 29th July 1931, three sections had been completed; the children’s playground, tennis courts, and bowling greens. Mr Clifford Tozer, Mayor of Plymouth led the opening event, which accounts say was attended by a crowd of thousands.

The programme outlines the sequence of events, which began at the children’s playground and proceeded to the tennis courts and included demonstrations of games by schoolchildren and members of the Mannamead Lawn Tennis club.
