HC Deb 07 March 1887 vol 311 c1405
MR. PICKERSGILL (Bethnal Green, S.W.)

asked the First Commissioner of Works, Whether the revenue derived from Regent's Park exceeds the cost of its maintenance; and, if so, what is the amount of such excess?


The annual cost of maintaining Regent's Park, including Primrose Hill, is about £9,600. The only receipts derived from the Park have been obtained principally from grazing rents, and they amount to about £300. It is understood that there is a considerable estate in and about the Regent's Park belonging to the land revenues of the Crown and under the charge of the Department of Woods and Forests.
