Can anybody tell me , what year the park got rid of the Pagoda , that used to be there
Hi Bill, thanks for writing in. The pagoda is back
The original pagoda was put in Hyde Park in 1842 as the entrance to a Chinese exhibition. It was then moved to Victoria Park. It was damaged in WW2 and demolished in 1956. In 2010 that area was refurbished and a replica pagoda was built, based on old photos.Below is a photo I took in 2012 after they’d restored the island.
They need some deckchairs
