In 1914, in honour of his 25th anniversary and the 21st birthday of his son, the Marquis of Titchfield, the Duke of Portland, gave 11 acres of land to the town of Hucknall.

Another 13 acres were added by the Hucknall Miners Welfare Committee, funded by a coal tax.

The opening of the park was held up by the outbreak of the WWI but the Marquis finally conducted the opening ceremony in July 1922.
