We commissioned Kent Gardens Trust, a well-respected historical gardens research body recognised by Historic England and comprised of volunteer researchers to explore and report on the history of the development of the area and principle of the Margate Coastal Park.

Their findings are based on primary sources, such as the minutes of the Margate Borough Council, held in the Kent Archive at Maidstone. The relevant extracts from the minutes are available to download by clicking HERE.
