Howard Davis Park

Don Road, St Helier, JE2 7GP


The Howard Davis Park in St Helier was a gift to the island by one of its most generous benefactors, Thomas Benjamin Frederick Davis. TB Davis gave the park to the island as a lasting memorial to his son Howard Davis who died from wounds he received on the first day of the Battle of the Somme.

Davis knocked down a large mansion, leaving just the billiard room which is now a memorial hall dedicated to the memory of his son. Howard’s medals, photographs and paintings of him and the family are on display.

The park features the only Commonwealth War Cemetery permitted to have wooden crosses instead of white headstones. Plus, it is the plays host to the annual Jersey Film Festival in August.
