Moved without the full stop
I moved St. James's Park to St James's park (without the full stop) because according to the official website, it doesn't have a full stop. —The preceding unsigned comment was added by Parable1991 (talk • contribs) 01:21, 31 March 2007 (UTC).
- I'm afraid that I've moved this back.
- There was a discussion about this a while ago (2004?), and the "full stop" is indeed part of the name. I've got a few 'photos of the park's signage to prove it if you really want. :-)
- A web-site is a very poor guide for what is "correct", as they're normally done by web designers rather than people familiar with the topic.
- For comparison, St. James's Park tube station is also with the dot.

|Picture of the day|
The lake at St. James's Park, viewed from the Blue Bridge. St. James's Park in the City of Westminster, central London, is the oldest of the Royal Parks of London. Established in 1603 after a marsh was drained, the park was once home to camels, crocodiles, and an elephant.
Page should be moved to St James's Park
The above discussion about the name is wrong. The recent signage is all St James's Park, as is the official website. Modern British English uses 'St', not 'St.' The name of the Tube station is irrelevant. Returnofthesecretbar (talk) 18:54, 14 June 2016 (UTC)
