Sir Joseph Paxton (born 3 August 1803 – died 8 June 1865) was an English gardener, architect, politician and a Member of Parliament (representing the Liberal Party). He was perhaps best known for designing the Crystal Palace (for the Great Exhibition)[1] and for cultivating the Cavendish Banana (the most thoroughly consumed banana in the Western world).[2] Paxton is also famous for the first publicly-funded park, which was situated in Birkenhead. It had a strong influence on the design of subsequent parks, including Central Park in New York.
