Brief history of site

The 9 acre site was purchased by Edmonton Borough Council with the help of a grant of £2,000 from King George's Fields Foundation, from which the playing field gets its name. The Foundation was set up in 1936 following the King's death in order to provide a living memorial to him through funding playing fields for young people.
