Regent's Park came into existence as a result of a property venture. The venture was initiated in 1811 by the government of the Prince Regent, the title from 1811-1820 of King George IV (reigned 1820-30), for whom the park is named. The Prince Regent was a prolific developer, particularly of his own palaces and estates. He was also the "patron and protector" of John Nash (1752-1835).... The Regent's Park as a whole is the largest royal park in central London. — Alan Tate, 86
